The exhibit tells the stories of labor-migration in the 1960s and 1970s.
The memories of eyewitnesses are told through their relationships with personal items which focus on social aspects of migration – in this way migration becomes a visible part of Tirol’s history.
This exhibit provides a room for discussion, in which different experiences and perspectives can be heard:
What conditions did the migrants live in?
Were there opportunities to learn the language?
Which rooms were open for them; which were closed?
How did the so-called „Guest Workers“ and their families stay connected to their country of origin?
