Abstract :
The conversation tells the story of the escape of Mahmood A. in 2014 from Syria to Germany. It shows his personal destiny in the confusions of the civil war, the story of his family, the problems on the usual escape-routes, and the new beginning in a strange life-world. Conversations like these should attempt to replace an abstract approach to a topic of mere experience, where every bright theory seems rather to satisfy philosophical narcissism than to give an insight into the experience of a migrant.
