2 Migration: objects that tell stories

The topic of the first unit of your textbook is “New countries, new lives”.  The text in the book seems frozen in the void. How can we avoid mentioning what’s happening around us?  Almost 4 million people have fled Syria since the start of the  Syrian conflict (you can read more about it here) . It is one of the largest refugee exoduses in recent history. Next Monday we shall visit a photographic exhibition at La Caixa that approaches the topic of refugees from the perspective of the objects they value most.

We shall use 12 stories of 12 objects narrated by people who migrated to New York to reflect on what moving to a different country means .
