Frank Lum came to the United States by boat from China in 1930 with his family. But because his information was incomplete, he was forced to stay alone at the Angel Island Immigration Station for 10 days when he was only 5 years old. It was a long time ago, but he said he can still remember it.

Lum told his story this month at the Dynasty Seafood Restaurant in Cupertino, where the Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation announced plans to expand its exhibits commemorating the Chinese immigrants who were detained on the island during the immigration process.

The foundation has renovated the abandoned immigration station to give a window into its history. On Saturday, the foundation will hold a reenactment day, when actors in period costumes will recreate historic immigrant interrogations. On July 23, the organization will unveil a Centennial Wall on the island in honor of the immigrants to America, reports the Sing Tao.

The foundation has also created an online exhibit, “Immigrant Voices,” which allows people to post their own families’ immigration stories.

While immigrants to the East Coast came through Ellis Island, immigrants to the West Coast between 1910 and 1940 came through the U.S. immigration center at Angel Island. Although most of them were Chinese, the station was also the first stop for many immigrants of Russian, Jewish, Korean and Japanese descent.
