A group of students studying German at Northwestern University travelled to Berlin to speak to refugees and to volunteer in the Notunterkunft Rathaus Wilmersdorf, a refugee shelter in the former Town Hall.

The students conducted research onsite, interviewing the refugees in German, English, and even Arabic about their journey from Syria to Germany and their plans for a new future.

Chicago Mural Movement

The Chicago Mural Movement website features a browsable archive of outdoor murals created in Chicago between 1964 and 1978, along with documentary photographs and metadata.

The archive also presents a series of mural mini-stories created by students in a Northwestern first-year seminar “The Wall of Respect and Chicago’s Mural Movement.”
