Children in Exile Stories Made in Transit – Help from Hollywood – Summer Academy
School groups from Berlin and unescorted young refugees from a youth welfare service programme in the Federal State of Brandenburg (Soziale Initiative Niederlausitz e. V.) present the results of their workshops.
The experiences of children in flight from their homelands and living in exile are the focus of the programme "Children in Exile". Hundreds of thousands of children are now coming to Europe as refugees, and hundreds of thousands of children in Berlin come from families that have found a new home in Germany. A documentary exhibition, related special events, and school workshops link the present with exile experiences of the past, traces of which can be found among the many estates in the extensive archives of the Akademie der Künste.
