BredowCast 45: Mediennutzung in deutschen Flüchtlingslagern 1945-2000

There are specific information needs and media use practices in refugee shelters. Philipp Seuferling explores them and talks about it in the new episode of the BredowCast.

Over the past decades, Germany has experienced a number of refugee movements. People from various countries found temporary accommodation in collective accommodation. Due to the special information needs of the residents, very specific media usage practices developed there.

In the camps of the immediate post-war years, the residents published "camp newspapers" to inform residents about topics relevant to them. "Camp cinemas" were used for entertainment, but were also considered by the Allied Forces as an opportunity for democratic re-education. Later, the media also served as a means for refugees to draw attention to grievances in their shelters.
Philipp Seuferling, currently guest researcher at the Leibniz Institute for Media Research, writes his dissertation on media practices in German refugee camps between 1945 and 2000. In the BredowCast, he tells Johanna Sebauer how the use of media by refugees has changed over time and why people should think about it.
