“We Refugees. Digital Archive on Refugeedom, Past and Present“ considers itself a network of partners that brings together contents from research institutions, collections, museums and archives and puts historical and contemporary experiences of flight on one multi-lingual platform.

The topics of flight, arrival, new beginning or transit in the chosen cities of refuge and perception – even if only temporary – make connection lines and (im)possibilities of comparability visible. The platform is meant for multiplicators in remembrance and education work at museums, memorials, universities, schools etc. in Europe and worldwide.
