Archive of Refuge

Runtime

Initiated by Haus der Kulturen der Welt as a large-scale oral history project, this online archive collects film interviews of 41 protagonists who fled to Germany between 1945 and 2016. They come from 28 countries of origin in South America, Africa, Eastern and South Eastern Europe, the Middle East, South East Asia, and East Asia and share their stories in nine languages.

The life stories cover a wide range of social or cultural backgrounds, religions, sexualities, and speak of the countries of origin, the journey, and life in Germany. At the time of recording, the interviewees were between 19 and 87 years old. The individual conversations are between one and six hours long.

Curators: Carolin Emcke, Manuela Bojadžijev
Artistic director: Bernd Scherer

Under the patronage of Frank-Walter Steinmeier, President of the Federal Republic of Germany.

The online archive and the production of the film interviews is funded by the German Federal Cultural Foundation.
Haus der Kulturen der Welt is supported by the Minister of State for Culture and the Media as well as by the Federal Foreign Office.
