With the key-word “emigration” most of the people associate the emigration to America in the 19th century.

In the years following 1820 about 60.000 people emigrated from Germany to America. The height has been after the failed revolution in Germany in 1848. In the years following 1850 up to 1 million people have gone overseas. Around 90% have travelled to the USA, others to Canada, Brazil and Australia.
