"Small Number - Big Impact" Schweizer Einwanderung in die USA
Sonderausstellung vom 02. MÃ¤rz bis 16. September Schweizerisches Landesmuseum ZÃ¼rich
The exhibition by the Migration Museum Association, supported by Präsenz Schweiz and originally shown in 2006 on Ellis Island, New York, has been expanded by the Swiss National Museum. Under the reverse title “Big Number – Small Impact” the Zurich version also shows the anonymous side of Swiss migration history by highlighting mass emigration from the cantons of Glarus and Ticino. Moreover, video interviews present a number of expatriate Americans actually living in Switzerland; they were filmed in the rooms of the recently re-arranged permanent exhibition of the Swiss National Museum.
