About the series

Under the title "Vietnamese Life in Erfurt", the Oral History Research Unit at the University of Erfurt invites you to a series of events that aims to give hitherto little-known (life) stories a place in Erfurt's cityscape and to counteract racially motivated prejudices.

The aim is to particularly address people who have so far felt excluded from cultural educational opportunities. Among others, Asian and migrant groups in the city are invited, but also the broad city society - people from all ages and educational levels. Admission to the events is free.

+++ Attention, for the events, for which there are only limited places, registration is recommended at e-mail: OH.Forschungsstelle@uni-erfurt.de.+++
