IOM, the UN Migration Agency, has opened an exhibition in Budapest portraying Hungary’s rich migration experience from 1956 to the present.
The event will also feature guided tours, discussions on the life of Muslims in Budapest, workshops to improve intercultural communication skills among secondary school students, and the screening of a documentary on the stories of Hungarians who recently left the country.
The exhibition is being held at the Pintér Galéria, 3 Markó street, Budapest, 1055, Hungary.
The 10-day show, which runs from 02/05 to 12/05, takes an intimate look at the personal stories and decision-making behind migration to and from Hungary through an array of souvenirs, memories and artwork.
Focusing on three groups of migrants with stories converging on Hungary, Faces of the Hungarian Migration Experience delves into the personal, historical and economic context of foreigners living in Hungary, of Hungarians who migrated to other European Union member states, and Hungarian refugees from the 1956 Uprising.
Showcasing a wide range of items that tell a story to help visitors and participants understand the human fates connected to the experience of migration.
