Experience the diversity of Germany from new perspectives!
“Autochthonous“ means “sprung from the land itself”. Danes, Frisians and Sorbs or Wends have their own “settlement regions”. These are historically established regions of origin where their cultures and languages are protected and promoted. For the German Sinti and Roma, this region is the whole of Germany, and for Low German as a regional language, it is the northern federal states. Of course, members of the minorities also live outside the settlement regions as they live their individual lives.
The travelling exhibition opened on March 16, 2022 in the Paul-Löbe-Haus at the German Bundestag, and will next on show at the Landeshaus in Kiel, the state parliament of Schleswig-Holstein. After that, the exhibition will tour Germany until at least 2027. You will be able to see forthcoming exhibition venues here. We look forward to coming to a place near you soon.
