Exhibition: "Migrants in Helsinki"

Migrants in Helsinki

An exhibition organized by the Finland Institute, Berlin

The exhibition 'Migrants in Helsinki: German-speaking emigrants in the history of the capital of Finland' shows that migration means enrichment by giving a historical example.

The architect Engels planned the famous Empire-style center in Helsinki, the artist Pacius composed the national anthem of Finland, the salesmen Stockmann and Paulig founded the largest department store and the biggest coffee-roasting business in the Nordic countries, the engineer Huber built the water supply of the capital city.

There are 16 roll-ups displaying the history of Helsinki, groups of migrants in the capital of Finland, and prominent German immigrants and institutions.

The travelling exhibition is the result of the cooperation between the town Helsinki und the Aue Foundation on the occasion of the Helsinki 200 year anniversary in 2012. That is why this exhibition is bilingual (German-Finnish).
