I came alone. February 25 - August 27


On display at The House of Emigrants:

I came alone - on the run for children and youth
February 25 - August 27
Photographs by Kenny Bengtsson
I came alone is about the meeting. To see the individual and hear her story. There are as many stories as there are people. In the exhibition we meet 50 of these stories that together gives a picture of what it means to flee as a child. Sometimes we think the story feels familiar, other times it surprises us and we learn something new.
