Twice A Stranger Project
A cross-media project about the greatest forced migrations of the 20th century, when millions of people were uprooted and moved to new homelands.
Based on oral video testimonies, rare film archives and photos the project brings visitors face-to-face with the survivors of these traumatic events. From the Greek-Turkish exchange in 1922-24, ‘Twice a Stranger’ travels to the German-Polish forced migration at the end of WW II, to the Partition of India, and to the Cyprus crisis’ in the 1960’s and 70’s.
The project is distributed online and via a multi-media exhibition, hosted at a series of venues in Greece, Turkey, Cyprus and across Europe. It is accompanied by educational programmes, storytelling sessions, documentary screenings, a children’s book, culinary nights, music events, community and outreach events.
