Migration has left a lasting mark on our society. In the motif series "Migration History in Pictures" we have selected objects from the DOMiD collection that stand for certain phenomena of migration history since 1945. In short, richly illustrated online stories, we tell how migrants have influenced the history of Germany.
How did the first ice cream come to Hamburg (Harburg)? Why is the term "Gastarbeiter" (guest worker) problematic? What role did migrants play in labor struggles? Why do we think first of men* when we think of "Gastarbeiter" (guest worker) and do not see the large number of female migrants? What was the living situation of so-called contract workers in the GDR?
These and other questions will be addressed in the online stories. As always, we welcome praise, criticism and personal stories (Contact) or objects on the above topics.
The motifs have also been published as printed postcards on the occasion of the anniversary year 2020, 30 years of DOMiD (remaining quantities can be ordered free of charge).
