History: 1927 - 1937

 

1927
The bustling era of trans-Atlantic transportation returns once again. In 1927, roughly 74,000 travelers are processed. Many of those emigrating are on their way to the U.S., with an increasing number destined for Canada. Due to newly enforced immigration quotas in America in addition to New York Pier 21 in Halifax, Canada becomes a frequent debarkation point for emigrants.

 

 

1937
On the 21st of May the Hapag-Terminal becomes the stage for an event of national significance, when twenty-five victims of the Hindenburg blimp explosion are brought by the steamer, "New York" to Cuxhaven for funeral processions held in the terminal building.
