On January 23rd 2017 we, classes 8b and 8d, went to Bremerhaven to visit the German Emigration Center.
In the museum’s exhibition we learned a lot about German emigrants and immigrants to Germany by going on a “rally” (a semi-guided tour). We had the chance to put ourselves in the positions of two of these people and experience the processes of emigration and immigration. I really focussed on “my” people and the rally. That’s why it was hard to take in all the other things as well.
Because of the very real and visual presentation, you sometimes had the feeling that you had travelled into the past. After that we could go on little trips in small groups. At the end we went back to our grammar school by bus and arrived during the last lesson of the day.
