Out of the Shadow: A Russian Jewish Girlhood on the Lower East Side

by Rose Gallup Cohen

Format: Paperback

Written in 1918 by Russian immigrant Rose Gallup Cohen, who arrived in the United States at age 12 and came of age in the Lower East Side in the 1890's and early 1900's, Out of the Shadow is a first-hand and eloquent account of what life was like when this neighborhood was the most crowded place on earth. Cohen describes the sweatshops where she worked, the streets where she walked, and the family that she found on the Lower East Side.
