Surprising Europe

A new TV series shows how the experience “Europe” really is for African immigrants. Surprising, often heart-warming but also frightening stories told by the immigrants themselves.

The series “Surprising Europe” has nine episodes and will go on air this month: from July 8th you can see the show in Dutch Television (Ned 2, or later on Uitzending Gemist), and from August onwards you can also find the show on Al Jazeera English.

It is more than a TV series, it is also an online platform where people share their oral and written stories. There you can read shocking stories in the “Surviving Europe” section; tales of racism, imprisonment and border control. Or you can head into the “cultural clash” section, finding experiences with mixed marriages and seeing how weird some European habits actually are, if you think about it.
