The Markowitz Family
I read a story about a family that immigrated. Here is their story and some of my thoughts.
First they went to The Pale to get away from their home town because people were attaching Jews and they were Jewish. I thought that was mean and I would not like it if people did that to me because of my religion. Then they went to Germany I think and they bought tickets to America. They didn't have enough money so they sold someones gold necklace. I hoped that they would like their thrip but it turns out everyone hated it. Once they got to America they rented a room in a tenement and it was crowded. I am glad that they even had enough money to get it. Two kids went to school and the whole Marks family, except for one kid, had to work. THey hated it. I would too. At the end of the story the Marks family moves off of Ellis Island and lives a better live. On kid goes to college and the other becomes a lawyer. I'm glad that we have better laws now because I would of not wanted to immagrate from what I have heard. It doesn't sound like fun. That is the story of the Marks family.
