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.
