From Lydia, Germany

Lydia, Stuttgart, Germany

Lydia, 25, from Derby., now living in Stuttgart, Germany. I moved to Stuttgart in October 2019 to start work as a German English translator. I studied German at University and have been in love with the language and culture since my first German lesson in Year 7. It's exciting to now be living and working in a country that has fascinated me for so long. I hope to continue living here and to make the most of living in central Europe whilst also keeping my special links and roots in the UK.


This postcard is one of several collated as part of collaboration between Dr Michaela Benson and the Migration Museum. A selection of these appears in the Postcards from the British in Europe installation in Departures, the museum's current exhibition exploring four centuries of emigration from Britain, bringing Britain’s emigration story and its emigrants into the national conversation about migration
