Mohammad and Mohammadker

In the shade, under the only tree, on this hot day at the Westhangfest, we met Mohammad and Momhammadker with their families. Both came from Sudan eight years ago as refugees, but only got to know each other in Dresden. They are working, have mastered the German language, and their children will soon be going to kindergarten. And yet they feel like strangers here. There is no contact with the neighbours. They wish it were different, but there is a lack of contact. "We often feel excluded, the racism is palpable. When we say hello, usually nothing comes back. Most of the time we are just among ourselves, unfortunately."
