PRESS RELEASE: Frankfurt-based refugee-storysharing charity joins forces with Frankfurt International School to host special event

Bridging The Gap Between Newcomers And Established Citizens

Their Story is Our Story, a charity run entirely by volunteers, is collaborating with the prestigious school for this first event of its kind to help bridge the gap between refugees and established citizens within the local communities of Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

‘Giving Voice: An Evening of Refugee Stories and Music’ will take place on Monday 11 February, 2019, at 7pm at Frankfurt International School Auditorium.

The event will include performances by Grenzenlos, a musical group formed exclusively by refugees and led by Sadegh Moazzen, who after fleeing his native Persia is now a concert guitarist, composer, and music teacher in Frankfurt. And, Parsa Behroz, a singer and songwriter forced to flee his native Iran, who is now finally able to live his life peacefully as a musician in Germany. Speakers will also narrate first-hand refugee stories shared with Their Story is Our Story, as featured in the charity’s new book release Let Me Tell You My Story.

We may look different, dress differently and eat differently,” explains Trisha Leimer, Chair and Founder of Their Story is Our Story. “But, we connect when we share our music, our food and our stories. It’s these shared experiences that build understanding, and strong and safe communities.

Grezenlos En Edit
Sadegh Moazzen and Grezenlos will perform at the special event on 11 February, 2019 at Frankfurt International School to help bring together refugees and established citizens within the local community.
