From Madeleine, Germany

01 January 2020

Madeleine, Stuttgart, Germany

Madeleine from Berkhamsted, Herts. I moved to Stuttgart in 2016 because I was offered a job at the university there. Then I met my partner and moved to Freiberg (while still working in Stuttgart). Stuttgart has been such a big part of my life - my father was counsel general here in 93-97- but I still don't know whether to stay forever or not. There isn't much for me in the UK job wise now, Brexit or not.


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
