DOMiD collects and conserves materials which document migration history. Furthermore, we believe it is our duty to research and present the history of migration in Germany to a wide audience. In addition to our museological and archival work, we organize events, conferences and talks. Our goal is to convey that migration is a normal part of the human history. We believe this perspective can provide a basis for developing a shared, transcultural identity.
