Author Steven Ujifusa will present his book, THE LAST SHIPS FROM HAMBURG: Business, Rivalry, and the Race to Save Russia’s Jews on the Eve of World War. Ujifusa tells the largely forgotten, colorful story of three remarkable businessmen who, driven by very different motives, made much of the Jewish immigration from Eastern Europe to the United States possible, forever changing the fates of millions.

Steven Ujifusa is the author of A Man and His Ship, Barons of the Sea, and the new book THE LAST SHIPS FROM HAMBURG: Business, Rivalry, and the Race to Save Russia’s Jews on the Eve of World War I (11/21/23). He is the recipient of the Washington Irving Medal for Literary Excellence from the Saint Nicholas Society of the City of New York, and the Athenaeum of Philadelphia’s Literary Award. He lives with his wife and two sons in Philadelphia.

Copies of the book will be available for purchase after the presentation. This event is free and open to the public.

This program is sponsored by Friends in the City (FitC) and Philadelphia City Institute Library.
