In September 2021, the decision was made to focus our EEA communications work in the first half of 2022 on the theme “East meets West – West meets East”.

When my parents and I came to Germany in 1976, I had no idea how much coming from Russia would shape my life and my identity. In Russia, we were called fascists and Germans. Here in Germany, I heard in the schoolyard: “Those are the Russians!”. The few Russian-German children in elementary school stood out because of their language, clothing, and behavior.
