Rosa Luxemburg: The coldest summer. Three refugees’ stories
We are happy to inform you about our new publication, an issue titled
The coldest summer. Three refugees' stories
with comic art by Dimitra Adamopoulou, Thanasis Petrou, Yiorgos Tragakis. The stories are based on the autobiographical narratives of refugees we met in Athens and in Berlin. They are random stories, without a particular climax. We chose to turn them into comics in order to avoid drama but at the same time to retain narrative detail. The protagonists of the stories are people who could have been members of our family, our friends or our neighbours. They are, beyond doubt, people who, some day, will become our fellow human beings in our societies and in our spaces. Let us welcome them.
RLS Athens Office has already published Eleni Takou and Vassilis Papastergiou's booklet, Migration in Greece: Eleven Myths and Even More Truths. That publication sought to deconstruct certain myths that circulate and are reproduced in Greek society, and its updated version (only in Greek) was published in the beginning of 2015. In view of the sharp influx increase of the past several months, our new contribution to the public debate turns to real stories told by real people. The volume also includes a literary text and two short essays on migration.
The comics issue, like all publications of the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung, is free of charge. For free copies, please contact the Office in Greece. You can also read and download the Greek version online. An English translation will be published very soon.
