Lord Moser on Migration

Lord Moser, a Distinguished Friend of the Migration Museum Project, shares his thoughts on the value of migration.

On 22 October 2014, Lord Moser and playwright Carl Miller joined writer Susie Harries in conversation at the Goethe Institut London for a Migration Museum Project Great Minds event in partnership with CARA.

The conversation was an opportunity to revisit the 1920s Berlin in which Lord Moser lived until he was 13, and which Carl Miller captured – through the eyes of young Emil – in his production last year of Emil and the Detectives at the National Theatre. It was also an opportunity to reflect on what people bring with them and what they leave behind when they move from one place to another.

It was a truly special evening and we are delighted to be able to share highlights from the conversation with you through the video above and through a longer video of all three speakers in conversation.

Huge thanks to violinist Mandhira de Saram for closing the conversation with a stunning performance, to the Goethe Institute London for hosting us and to Gregg Houston for capturing the evening through film.
