Traces from yesterday and today
When we talk about exiles or forced migrations, we immediately tend to quantify: hundreds, thousands, millions? Behind all these amounts there are always people. Individuals who live and express their experience in a unique way. Groups of people who, even without knowing each other or without having converged in time and space, share the impact of their experiences. Entire communities that influence and, at the same time, are influenced by these displacements.
Exile and forced migration leave their trace. Traces on the trails, in the lives of the people who live them, in the lives of the people with whom they cross paths, in the societies to which they arrive. ” Traces from yesterday and today” reviews the traces left by these experiences in the past and in the present.
