Description
 
In the late 19th and early 20th century, Pittsburgh, also known as “Steel City,” was the largest steel-producing center in the United States. With its need for labor in the steel industry, Pittsburgh had an insatiable hunger for workers. Polish immigrants helped meet this demand. The city of Pittsburgh, as well as the surrounding area, was a heavily ethnic environment, and significant remnants of that heritage continue. Today, there is still a city neighborhood officially designated Polish Hill (Polski Gory). This book chronicles the immigration of Poles to Pittsburgh in several waves, beginning with those from German-occupied Poland, then Russian-occupied Poland, and finally, the largest group emigrating from that section of partitioned Poland under the control of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
