Special Exhibition at the Regional Museum of the Burgenland due to the 100th anniversary of the Burgenland

In the 1920s and 1930s the bad situation of the economy and the high unemployment rate were the main reasons why many people from the Burgenland emigrated to the United States and to Canada. They all hoped to maintain higher living standards and prosperitiy there. The exhibition deals with the history and the stories about these people.
