How does it feel to be poor in a rich country like Germany? Five young women from Tübingen from Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan have dealt with the topic of poverty in connection with a youth empowerment project. On Wednesday, 22 February, the result of their work will be shown in the short film “I am strong”. The young women describe their flight and then their life in Germany. They are poor in both phases of their lives. The protagonists distinguish their experience between “absolute poverty” and “relative poverty”. Before the film screening, the author Christian Baron will read from his book “A Man of His Class”. The event begins at 6 p.m. in Room One of the Westspitze, Eisenbahnstraße 1. Admission is free. Registration is not required.
