We Refugees Archive understands itself as a partner network that brings together the content resources of research institutions, collections, museums and archives, presents historical and current flight experiences on a multilingual platform, and refers to further collections or relevant partner projects.

The themes of flight, arrival, new beginnings or transit in selected cities of (possibly temporary) refuge and accommodation are used to point out connections and (im)possibilities of comparability. The platform is aimed at multipliers of remembrance and educational work in museums, memorials, universities and schools in Europe and worldwide.
