Abstract

Emigration of citizens from the north-eastern provinces of the Second Polish Republic to the USA in 1921–1939


In 1921–1939 many people living in the north-eastern provinces of the Second Polish Republic (in Belarusian historiography: western Belarusian territories) decided to emigrate in search of jobs and a better life. The present article focuses on the emigration processes involving people living in the Provinces of Vilnius, Novogrod, Polesia and Białystok, and emigrating to the USA in the inter-war period. The author has analysed the legal grounds of emigration, required documents and visas, as well as transport and emigration statistics. He points to the socio-economic aspects of emigration to the USA as well as its characteristic features in the region in question.
