Portraits of Indians in Germany Home Away From Home

Indian presence can be felt throughout Germany — be it the tantalizing scent of Indian cuisine permeating the air or the sight of Indian students making their way to universities. But what draws Indians to Germany, and what keeps them there? In this dossier, we explore personal stories and experiences of Indians living in Germany, including navigating cultural differences and finding success in their careers, revealing the unique challenges and rewards of living as an Indian in Germany.

Proximity and Distance

In ways we never imagined, a virus compelled the world to embrace distance and rethink the closeness we share with others. The Goethe-Instituts in Brazil, Korea, India, and Germany focus on the future: how close to others can we be, and how close do we want to be?
