Immigration: Stories of Yesterday and Today and Ellis Island World War II and the Postwar Period The United States entered World War II in 1942. During the war, immigration decreased. There was fighting in Europe, transportation was interrupted, and the American consulates weren't open. Fewer than 10 percent of the immigration quotas from Europe were used from 1942 to 1945.In many ways, the country was still fearful of the influence of foreign-born people. The United States was fighting Germany, Italy, and Japan (also known as the Axis Powers), and the U.S. government decided it would detain certain resident aliens of those countries.

Des origines à nos jours - Le peuplement et l'Histoire de l'Europe À l'extrémité de l'immense Eurasie, l'Europe bénéficie d'un climat tempéré et de côtes ciselées, favorables au cabotage des navires et aux échanges. Ces facteurs ont très tôt favorisé son peuplement. Nous conservons de la préhistoire les belles peintures rupestres de Lascaux (France) ou encore Altamira (Espagne), vieilles de 18.000 ans environ. Il n'empêche que le continent a été pour l'essentiel peuplé au IIe millénaire avant JC par plusieurs vagues d'immigration indo-européennes (à l'époque où arrivaient en Europe ces tribus plus ou moins sauvages, en Mésopotamie prospérait la cité de Babylone !). Immigrations indo-européennes Les tribus indo-européennes se sont répandues en Europe, en Iran et dans le sous-continent indien à partir des vastes plaines de l'actuelle Russie. Au cours du 1er millénaire avant JC, la civilisation urbaine pénètre en Europe par le biais des marchands et des colons venus de Grèce ou encore de Phénicie et de Carthage.
