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.

Found some treasures in your attic or basement?

If you are in possesion of material that you think may be relevant to migration history, we would love to hear from you! Become a donor.

The migrant knowledge has not been taken into account for decades, although it has always been and remains an expertise on racism. Now this knowledge has a museum.
