Sixty years ago the first Turkish migrants came to Ghent. Nowadays almost one out of ten Ghent citizens has Turkish roots. A group of young people of Turkish descent set out to find stories, objects and the meaning behind those figures.

The focus of this search was the question of what should be preserved for future generations. With the help of their grandparents, parents and acquaintances, they looked for objects, stories and relevant facts relating to the Turkish migration to Ghent. The outcome of their efforts is a new Ghent-Turkish heritage collection.
