Special Callsign to celebrate the opening of the Red Star Line Museum in Antwerp, Belgium.
Between 1873 and 1934, over two million Europeans emigrated Via Antwerp, Europe’s second largest port city. Crossing on the Red Star Line, these emigrants brought a fresh infusion of drive and creativity to America, where their influence on contemporary culture is undeniable.
On September 28, 2013, the Red Star Line Museum will open in the historical warehouses of the Red Star Line shipping company in Antwerp.
The Red Star Line Museum tells the story of those millions of Europeanswho had the courage to leave everything behind and go away, in search of happiness and a better life. It is a story of high expectations and huge disappointments, a story about adrenaline and sleepless nights. In the old buildings of the shipping company all these emotions and stories are tangible and visible.
