What forms of remembrance are needed in today’s societies shaped by migration? This oral history project concerns itself with the memories of people migrating to Germany as an integral part of German post-war history, seeking to protect them from being forgotten and suppressed. 41 documentary film interviews with people who migrated to West and East Germany over the last 70 years are being used to create a commemorative website.
