From Natasha, Germany

Natasha, Augsburg, Germany

1. What brought you to the place? My mum has loved in Munich for very 20 years. I wanted to study German law for my Masters (LLM) and be close to her. 2) Where did I move from? Aberdeen, Scotland in 2014. Originally from Edinburgh (DOB: 04/91). 3) one thing about my life here? I live in Augsburg but work in Munich at an international law firm. The quality of life is very high here and even thought there is a lot of bureaucracy and high taxes, citizens are treated fairly. I have been very lucky to benefit from freedom of movement and hope my German citizenship is granted so that I can continue living here without problems or far from discrimination as a 'third country national'. Other than that I get to ski in the Alps every weekend :). From Natasha (28 years). Total time in Germany (with breaks between): 14 years.


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
