Leben trotz Duldung

What does life in Berlin look like when ones stay is merely tolerated?

Burhan, Said and Wali talk about what it means when all perspectives are closed off by an employment ban.

And above all, what it takes to fight your way out of that situation.


Our deepest thanks for these intimate insights and our fullest respect for your strength in the struggle.

Wie sieht ein Leben in Berlin aus, wenn der Aufenthalt lediglich geduldet ist?

Burhan, Said und Wali berichten davon, was es heißt, wenn sämtliche Perspektiven durch ein Beschäftigungsverbot verschlossen bleiben.

Und vor allem davon, was es braucht, um sich einen Weg heraus zu erkämpfen.

Unser tiefster Dank für diese intimen Einblicke und unser vollster Respekt für euren starken Kampf.

Jenseits des American Dream

Last year, the most amazing Wiebke Keuneke went on tour with a delegation from Gangway in Chicago and Detroit and now her report "Jenseits des American Dream" - about the German and American social workers in the prison system in Chicago and Detroit has been granted an award.
1st prize in the radio category by RIAS BERLIN KOMMISSION

"(...) report draws its energy from the curiosity about another world. At the same time, it is about reverence for the committed people who try to change things there (...)" - says the jury.

Respect to Wiebke Keuneke who came with us to file a report about the improvement of the sometimes inhumane conditions within the prison system in the USA and thus contributed her part to the fact that prison reform should not remain a utopia in the USA.

 Many thanks to the Goethe-Institut and Goethe-Institut Chicago

 You can still listen to the report on the SWR2 website
