Ich Wünschte, Zu Hause Wäre ein Besserer Ort zum Leben

Auswandern ist schwierig. Fort von Familie und Freunden sein, eine neue Sprache lernen und immer ein minderwertiger Bürger sein (besonders wenn man aus dem Nahen Osten kommt). Und wenn man als älterer Mensch auswandert, dann muss man wieder von ganz vorne anfangen.

Als ich 20 war, beschloss ich, nach Wien auszuwandern, um meine Ausbildung fortzusetzen. Ich hatte vor zu studieren, einen Job zu bekommen und möglicherweise den Rest meines Lebens in dieser Stadt zu verbringen. In diesem Jahr haben wir für MirHossein Mousavi gestimmt, aber Ahmadinedschad wurde gewählt! Aber plötzlich änderte sich alles. Ich habe mich in Mehrdad verliebt, als ich mit der Beantragung meines Visums beschäftigt war. Mehrdad wollte im Iran leben. Er wollte Iran wieder aufbauen. Er glaubte, dass kleine Schritte große Veränderungen bewirken können. Er hoffte auf den Fortschritt und die Verbesserung des Iran. Er liebte den Iran; Genau wie ich. Wir haben geheiratet und so bin ich im Iran geblieben!

Jedes Jahr verabschiedeten wir uns von vielen unserer Freunde und Verwandten, die nach Europa, Amerika, Kanada auswanderten ... für ein besseres Leben. Wir blieben jedoch, aber dachten jeden Tag und jede Nacht daran auszuwandern und zweifelten an unserer Entscheidung. Auswandern ist schwierig. Fort von Familie und Freunden sein, eine neue Sprache lernen und immer ein minderwertiger Bürger sein (besonders wenn man aus dem Nahen Osten kommt). Und wenn man als älterer Mensch auswandert, dann muss man wieder von ganz vorne anfangen.

Berichten zufolge haben 10.000 Menschen den Iran infolge der zehnten iranischen Präsidentschaftswahlen verlassen, und diese Zahl wächst jedes Jahr. Die Einwanderung kann für einen aus dem Nahen Osten noch schwieriger sein. Wir haben eine tiefe Zuneigung zu unserer Familie, Freunde und unserer Muttersprache.

Andererseits ist es schwierig, in einem Land zu leben, das mit vielen wesentlichen Problemen konfrontiert ist. "Wie oft können wir unserer Leben (richtig) leben?",  ist vielleicht eine Frage die wir uns jeden Tag in Iran stellen. Wir haben im Iran viele Probleme, wie mangelnde soziale Freiheit, Inflation, hohe Preise, Sorgen um Sanktionen, und vielleicht Krieg und sogar die Wasser- und Umweltkrise, mit der wir jeden Tag zu kämpfen haben.

10 Jahre sind vergangen, seit ich mich entschlossen habe auszuwandern (und nicht getan habe). Ich zweifle immer noch jeden Tag. Mein Mann und ich betreiben jetzt eine große Buchhandlung im Iran. Und wir versuchen immer noch, große Änderungen in kleinen Schritten vorzunehmen. Wenn wir aufwachen, dann mit dem Gedanken, unser Zuhause (Iran) zu verlassen, und nachts schlafen wir mit denselben Gedanken ein und sagen uns: "Ich wünschte, Zuhause wäre ein besserer Ort zum Leben."

Eine Geschichte von zwei Ländern: Teil II

A story by Janina Cymborski

Die wahrgenommenen Unterschiede zwischen Ost- und Westdeutschen sind nicht allein in den 40 Jahren Teilung eines Landes nach 1945 begründet, sondern ebenso in den Jahren nach der Wiedervereinigung. So erstrebenswert Einheit auch ist – Unterschiede zu akzeptieren ist vielleicht der bessere Weg für mehr Verständnis.

An Alien From the Same Planet

A story by Veronica Burgstaller

It has to be remembered that through all these moving places, I stayed the same person, I had my Austrian passport, I was half Austrian and half Indonesian: yet in Indonesia, I may have been an expat, in England an immigrant, in Korea - a constant struggle to become somewhat included. It is clear that the power as to who I am is not in my hands.

At Correspondents of the World, we want to contribute to a better understanding of one another in a world that seems to get smaller by the day - but somehow neglects to bring people closer together as well. We think that one of the most frequent reasons for misunderstanding and unnecessarily heated debates is that we don't really understand how each of us is affected differently by global issues.

Unser Ziel ist es, dies zu verbessern - und zwar mit jeder Geschichte, die wir teilen.

I Wish Home Was a Better Place to Live In

A story by Noosha

Immigration is difficult. Being away from family and friends, learning a new language and always being a second-class citizen (especially if you are from the Middle East). And if you get old, starting again from nothing.

Global Issues Through Local Eyes

We are Correspondents of the World, an online platform where people from all over the world share their personal stories in relation to global development. We try to collect stories from people of all ages and genders, people with different social and religious backgrounds and people with all kinds of political opinions in order to get a fuller picture of what is going on behind the big news.

Our Correspondents

At Correspondents of the World we invite everyone to share their own story. This means we don't have professional writers or skilled interviewers. We believe that this approach offers a whole new perspective on topics we normally only read about in the news - if at all. And in case you wondered: Everyone includes you as well. Do you have a story to share? Reach out to us and let us know!

Our Community

Although we just started a few months ago, we already have a great community of people from all over the world. While face-to-face meetings are difficult at the moment, our Facebook Community Group is THE place to be to meet other people invested in Correspondents of the World. We are currently running a series of online-tea talks to get to know each other better.

Vision

At Correspondents of the World, we want to contribute to a better understanding of one another in a world that seems to get smaller by the day - but somehow neglects to bring people closer together as well. We think that one of the most frequent reasons for misunderstanding and unnecessarily heated debates is that we don't really understand how each of us is affected differently by global issues.

Our aim is to change that with every personal story we share.

Topics

We believe in quality over quantity. To start off with, we collect personal stories that relate to our correspondents' experiences with five global topics:

Environment

Discussions about the environment often center on grim, impersonal figures. Among the numbers and warnings, it is easy to forget that all of these statistics actually also affect us - in very different ways. We believe that in order to understand the immensity of environmental topics and global climate change, we need the personal stories of our correspondents.

Gender

Gender is the assumption of a "normal". Unmet expectations of what is normal are a world-wide cause for violence. We hope that the stories of our correspondents will help us to better understand the effects of global developments related to gender and sexuality, and to reveal outdated concepts that have been reinforced for centuries.

Migration

Our correspondents write about migration because it is a deeply personal topic that is often dehumanized. People quickly become foreigners, refugees - a "they". But: we have always been migrating, and we always will. For millions of different reasons. By sharing personal stories about migration, we hope to re-humanize this global topic.

Liberation

We want to support the demand for justice by spotlighting the personal stories of people who seek liberation in all its different forms. Our correspondents share their individual experiences in creating equality. We hope that for some this will be an encouragement to continue their own struggle against inequality and oppression - and for some an encouragement to get involved.

Corona Virus

2020 is a year different from others before - not least because of the Corona pandemic. The worldwide spread of a highly contagious virus is something that affects all of us in very different ways. To get a better picture of how the pandemic's plethora of explicit and implicit consequences influences our everyday life, we share lockdown stories from correspondents all over the world.

Get Involved

We believe that every single personal story contributes to a better understanding of the complex world we live in - and the people we share it with. That includes yours! We would be really happy if you would like to share your story, too, and join our community.

Growing Fast

Although we started just over a year ago, Correspondents of the World has a quickly growing community of correspondents - and a dedicated team of editors, translators and country managers.
