I Came a Stranger: The Story of a Hull-House Girl - 27155897-6bcf-9bca-49f0-2cb1cf7233a4
Manufacturer: Hilda Satt Polacheck
I Came a Stranger: The Story of a Hull-House Girl

Hilda Satt Polacheck's family emigrated from Poland to Chicago in 1892, bringing their old-world Jewish traditions with them into the Industrial Age. Here, in charming and colorful prose, she recounts her introduction to American life and the Hull-House community, her friendship with Jane Addams, her marriage, her support of civil rights, woman suffrage, and the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, and her experiences as a writer for the WPA.

Publisher: University of Illinois Press, 1991
