General Information: 

Migration is a forgotten part of Austria's postwar history, invisible in the dominating narratives. The Working Group "Archive of Migration" calls for a change and transformation: Migrants must be recognised as both, historical subjects and actors. As a basis for a new history to be written we call for the collection and preservation of relevant material and documents
