Antwerp was a particularly popular port of emigration among Jews from Central and Eastern Europe. These people constituted a sizeable proportion of the Red Star Line’s passengers. The shipping company recruited its “customers” from deep within Eastern Europe.
In 2013, the Red Star Line Museum will open in the historic warehouses of the Red Star Line shipping company.
