In a fascinating look at a vast movement of people from Africa to Germany over the second half of the 20th century, journalist Kwaku A. Poku documents these trends on a very personal level. An African refugee himself, he reports from "the inside" with access to people who came to Germany out of desperation to make a better life, yet they find something far from "ideal". In a narrative that is sometimes chilling, and other times heartbreaking, the reader will be left with a better understanding of the struggles that people undertake in search of a better life.
This work fills an important void in the history of refugee movements and will undoubtedly be a valuable resource for historians, academics and anyone else interested in this topic of African refugees in Germany.
This book also presents essays by the author based on his research on the lost tribes of Israel and the Akan tribes in Ghana.
