Neue Heimat

Lecture with Marina Naprushkina

In their day-to-day struggle with government offices, doctors, lawyers, in day-care centres and schools, refugees are often left to fend for themselves: the language and system are alien to them, after despair and fleeing they now continue to experience their lack of prospects on a daily basis. In her book Neue Heimat, Marina Naprushkina takes stock of Berlin refugee everyday life, and shows what German »welcoming culture« often looks like in reality.
