      In the 19th century people who left the villages of South Bohemia traveled by horse cart to a train station, then by rail to the ports in Germany where they could board ships. Some departed from Hamburg, Bremerhaven, and Antwerp (Belgium), but most Czechs went to Bremen where the shipline Norddeutscher Lloyd (North German Lloyd) offered regular passenger service to America on several of their ships, first sailing vessels and later, the larger steamships. The Hermann was one of those ships.
