4. Testimonials from the Stadtmuseum exhibition“Anerkennung” (Recognition) by Saad and Emad - Oldenburg Recorded by Juliane Samide (IBIS e.V.) Saad Our colleague told us about the project of the exhibition “Anerkennung” (Recognition) and asked us if we wanted to participate. She said that videos should be made in which we can talk about people without a German passport not being able to vote. I really wanted that! I know so many people who have fled and who would like to vote in Germany to feel part of it. I work here in Oldenburg and pay taxes. Why can't I vote here? I hope that this question will give many museum visitors food for thought and that they will consider what it means not to be able to vote in a country where you live. Maybe this will have an effect on some of the visitors and if not, I could at least express my wish for the future. I think the atmosphere in the museum is great. I especially liked the mixture between old and modern. Not only with the exhibits, but also with the rooms. It has something very special about it!

Emad It was the same with me. Our colleague asked us if we would like to be present at the museum's exhibition. Such projects are particularly important to me in terms of integration. Oldenburg is my new home and I want to participate in the processes here and at the same time express my own opinion. The exhibition made that possible for me. I was able to express my opinion and was seen and heard by the museum visitors. My opinion is important! And I hope, like Saad, that many people understand my wish to be allowed to vote. I was in the museum in Oldenburg for the first time. Without the project I would probably never have gone to the museum. That's different now. I got to know the museum and experienced Oldenburg in particular from a completely new perspective. I now know much more about the city than before.
