Some of you are maybe interested in German history and wondered about the Vietnamese community in Germany. The reasons and implications of the North Vietnamese migration are quite well-known for people in the East and many of you might have read something about it. But maybe you’ve also noticed that the number of South Vietnamese people is much smaller in Berlin compared to the West of Germany.

The Vietnam war and the resulting refugee wave over the sea, commonly known as boat people, played a huge role in late 70s, and many Vietnamese people from the south ended up in different parts of West Germany.

In this little clip, you can find some insight into the story of the Southern Vietnamese community – through a dialogue between a father and his daughter. The animated clip tells the story of racism, the Vietnamese migration history and the second generation and which questions they might have.

Watch the clip here – the animated short film is about 10 minutes long.
