Interview with O. Since 2012 in Germany.
In the summer of 2020 we conducted a series of interviews with refugees. Most of our interviewees have been living in collective accommodation in Brandenburg, Saxony-Anhalt and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania for many years. Some of them could no longer stand living there and decided to live illegally in Berlin or Hamburg.
The conversations confirmed their unbearable situation to us. They led to joint reflections on what concrete steps could be taken to possible to improve their situation and gave us ideas for future public actions.
