Refugee's Academic Home THM

Upcoming Event: Movie Night and Concert

REACH Plakat A2 Cant be silent WebIntercultural week and Refugee Day in September - that's more than enough reason to stage a special event. Refugee's Academic Home THM (or REACH THM for short), along with the City and County of Giessen and both Advisory Boards for Foreign Nationals, has organized a movie night with a concert after the film. 
Anyone interested is cordially invited to come to the former ROXY cinema on 28 September starting at 6 p.m. to watch Julia Oelkers' film "Can't Be Silent", which will be followed by a performance of the diverse songs of the project documented in the film by "Strom & Wasser" featuring THE REFUGEES.
In addition, THM students having a refugee background who have received a scholarship made available by the Hessian Ministry for Science and the Arts will be honored during the event.
You can download the flyer for this event here.

Can't Be Silent – the moving story of refugee musicians

The film "Can't Be Silent" by Julia Oelkers tells the moving story of refugees in their dismal everyday lives in German refugee centres and their lives in the limelight. The band Strom & Wasser led by Heinz Ratz brings together rappers, musicians and singers who have fled from their native countries. They then have the chance to present their talents to the public and escape from the cramped quarters of their refugee centres where they are penniless - at least for a short time. More information about the film is available here.
