DOMiD's Goals

DOMiD collects and conserves materials which document migration history. Furthermore, we believe it is our duty to research and present the history of immigration in Germany to a wide audience. In addition to our museological and archival work, we organize events, conferences and talks. Our goal is to convey that migration is a normal part of the human history. We believe this perspective can provide a basis for developing a shared, transcultural identity.

 

A Central Museum of Migration

DOMiD is working, together with other private and public actors, toward establishing a central, modern Museum of Migration in Germany in the medium term. The museum will serve as a historical and cultural center for today’s "migration society." It will address questions surrounding international migration and its impact on Germany, past and present.
