Migration is a characteristic of almost all human cultures. It is not a new phenomenon, but has always been part of European history. The reasons for migration were and are manifold.

The exhibitions under the umbrella of the museum project "Protestant Migration History(s)" depict migratory movements from the perspective of Protestant cultural history. The participating museums and institutions present people who had to leave their homeland for reasons of faith, economic hardship or as a consequence of war. They tell of the cultural heritage of these people, of their opportunities and risks, and of how they helped shape their new worlds.

They explore the questions of how care for migrants developed in Protestantism and what can be learned from it for the problems of the present.

What is new and outstanding about the project is the cooperation of institutions in the source and destination countries of Protestant migration.
