About the Film

The Emma Lazarus Project is a three year multi-faceted initiative that explores the story of Emma Lazarus, a fifth-generation American Jew caught in an important turning point in American and Jewish History. The initiative - including the exhibit, curriculum and poetry contest - will not just redress omissions, but will exhibit a fuller, richer, more historically-grounded picture of Emma’s life than has yet been presented to a public audience.
