An exhibition about families from mainly Yugoslavia, Turkey and Pakistan who came in the 1960s and 1970s to work in Danish industries.
|A three-year-old girl from Yugoslavia is accompanied by her grandmother to Denmark in 1968 to be reunited with her parents. Not knowing there would be toilets on the plane, the grandmother let her bring her potty, just in case.||The grandmother from Yugoslavia pays a visit to the factory in Denmark where her son and daughter-in-law are working|
The exhibition, based on interviews and material from the archives, is produced in co-operation with the families concerned (often three generations) and focuses on their contacts with their former homeland, their view of their new homeland and their identity as Europeans. The families will have the opportunity to examine their identity as Europeans, as will visitors to the exhibition. Hopefully this exhibition will attract new visitors, both Danes and immigrants, and encourage them to accept and respect each other. The Workers’ Museum is a place for all people to use as a cultural resource.
