The Agency of Integration and Citizenship - bon teamed up with the Royal Belgian Library and the Amsab Institute to organise "Homeland 14-18". The exhibition (in DU/FR/EN) looks back on the exodus of hundreds of thousands of Belgian people during WWI and tells some personal stories of today's newcomers.  Last stop for this travelling exhibition is Tour & Taxis, where you can dive into these forgotten stories until July 31st.

Homeland 14-18 draws parrallels with the refugees arriving in Brussels & Flanders today, so the visitor can reflect on the current challenges. The same themes occur in today's testimonies and those of 100 years ago: work, education, study, social activities, tolerance, solidarity and interculturalism.
