Today, we’re exploring a new theme, focusing on the history of Luxembourgish emigration.

We’ll look at why in the 19th century, Luxembourgers left the Grand Duchy in great numbers; how their expeditions to South America largely failed; and how many did eventually come to settle in the United States, creating a Luxembourg-American community which exists to this day.
