50 Years of Immigration from Morocco

May to July 2013

Fifty years after the signing of the German-Moroccan Labor Recruitment Agreement ("deutsch-marokkanisches Anwerbeabkommen"), the milestone anniversary provided an opportunity for reflection.

DOMiD joined in the celebration of the 1963 agreement by taking part in a photo book project and a small exhibition. Over the past 50 years, many men and women from Morocco have contributed to Germany's development and have found a new home here.

The non-profit organization "Aktion Gemeinwesen und Beratung" organized a special anniversary celebration, which ran from May 3 through July 21. They hosted a series of events in Düsseldorf, which looked back over the past 50 years. Information about the events series can be found here (in German): www.marokkanische-migration.de
