Learn how immigrants survived economic hardships like the Great Depression, and how they received support from the government and their own community. Visit the 1930s home of Adolpho and Rosaria Baldizzi, immigrants from Sicily who lived at 97 Orchard Street with their children, Josephine and Johnny. As we did on our “Hard Times” building tour, we’ll explore their daily lives and experiences as immigrants living through the Great Depression. How did they manage economic struggles? What lessons can we draw from their story for our lives today?
