As part of the accompanying program of SILA YOLU – The Holiday Transit to Turkey and The Tales of the Highway Daughters and Sons of Gastarbeiters will read about their memories of their trips on the sıla yolu.

Daughters and Sons of Gastarbeiters is an open literature project organised by writers from Berlin, who followed their parents from the villages of Anatolia, Southern Europe and the Balkans to Germany or who were born in a working class neighborhood of the German Republic. Their fathers and mothers should support the economic miracle in Germany as so called “guest workers”. Now, the sons and daughters look back: in performative readings they tell their personal stories and revive them with pictures.

The readers will be Çiçek Bacık, Aziz Bozkurt, Semra Deniz, Koray Yılmaz Günay and Jasmin Karahan.

As a supporting film we will show the animation Karambolage – Ford Transit (2009, 5’) by Christine Gensheimer and Timo Katz.

Ein Projekt im Auftrag des QM Soldiner Kiez und des Bezirksamts Mitte, Stadtentwicklungsamt, und ist gefördert durch die Bundesrepublik Deutschland und das Land Berlin im Rahmen des Programms Zukunftsinitiative Stadtteil Teilprogramm Soziale Stadt.
