Reading followed by a discussion: The young poets - Ghani Ataei, Mahdi Hashemi, Kahel Kashmiri, Samilullah Rasouli, Shahzamir Hataki, and Yasser Niksada - told us how difficult and at the same time exciting it is to come into our world from an entirely different one, how they try to overcome their fear of strangers, why writing is liberating for them, and also about their first heartache in Berlin. The Wuppertal poetry slammer Jan Philipp Zymny read the poems in German.
