Postcards from AmerykaSettlements called Amerika, Americkį or Ameryka dot the map from the Netherlands to Poland and from Czech Republic to Finland. Their name and history speak of homesteading and yearning for a better future, of success and failed dreams, of hardship and the pursuit of happiness. After the late 18th century, political reforms made land ownership possible for serfs and leaseholders. Unclaimed land was only available in remote and barren areas. Settlers accepting the challenges compared themselves to the pioneers of the US American prairies. They called their villages Ameryka, thus arriving instantly at their dream destination. The cars, horses, houses, paths and empty spaces in 'Postcards from Ameryka' allude to the search of an acceptable place to call home, to freedom and opportunity.
