America prides itself on being a melting pot, and for more than a century virtually unrestricted immigration filled the country with residents from around the world. But war, racism and the fear of radical political movements led to legislation that drastically limited immigration from WWI to the 1960s.

Learn more about the historical forces that closed the nation’s doors and the impact that legislation had on ethnic and national groups who sought refuge here, with Case Western Reserve University professor and editor of The Encyclopedia of Cleveland History, Dr. John Grabowski.

This program is part of the 2014-2015 Cleveland Jewish History and Public Policy Series co-sponsored by Cleveland Jewish News Foundation, The Laura and Alvin Siegal Lifelong Learning Program at Case Western Reserve University, Teaching Cleveland Digital and the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage.
