Dear all, we are very happy to share with you the first of 36 posts we will make in the next months of all the Panels of our Conference „When I came to Germany“, which took place on the 28th and 29th of October, 2017, in Berlin: Guest workers, contract workers and migrant and refugee women from the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s and from today share their experiences.

CLICK HERE TO WATCH (ENGLISH VERSION) PANEL „GERMAN BUT WITH MIGRATION BACKGROUND“

What does the expression „German with a migration background“ even mean? Why are people not just seen and accepted as Germans? Two women with a so called „migration background“ will talk about this racist term imposed by others to differentiate and divide them from the other „real“ white Germans and how this type of discrimination has affected their identity as Germans.
