About the exhibition

Thousands of stories lie dormant beneath the surface, adding nuance and unknown details to the black-and-white images of historical events. But many of these stories are too private and personal or too traumatic to share. Feelings of despair, shame, or guilt are often associated with them, and people are sometimes afraid of the reactions of those to whom they tell the stories.

Identity on the Line is a large-scale collaborative project of six cultural history museums and a university working together to explore the long-term consequences of various migration processes that have taken place in Europe over the past 100 years, whether forced or voluntary.
