Crossing the border was more difficult, and an escape also had to be well prepared. Lindner believes that one cannot point blame at these countries either. They didn't want people who were a burden on the social system. Erik Lindner delved into the subject of escape across the sea in his book published in German and English. To offer more insight into the subject, Lindner first looks back to Greek mythology — to the tale of story of Aeneas, who fled Troy and managed to begin a new life in the West after a dangerous odyssey.
And that is at the beginning of the history of Europe.
Basically, Lindner said, he hopes that his book will contribute to broadening the view on the subject and that people can see that the motives for fleeing have been the same for millennia. These are actually a handful of valid reasons that exist today, just as they did a thousand years ago. He also sees a recurring pattern, for example, in the flight from hunger. In the middle of the 19th century, there was a great famine in Ireland due to years of bad harvests.
Almost one in eight Irish people died then. One million of them left their homeland, most of them emigrating to the US, Canada or Australia. Yet even after the catastrophe was over, the exodus did not cease. By , Ireland had lost almost half of its population to migration. Kennedy, was also among the Irish famine refugees. Historian Lindner also makes parallels to contemporary life.
The fundamental message of Erik Lindner's book is that there have always been and will always be refugee movements. What remains is the question of how to deal with them in their respective contexts. There are no easy answers to that, but what is important, according to the historian, is to respect the migrants and their motives. Europe must preserve its humanity because that is the "core of its identity," he said. And the subject of migration will certainly not diminish. They will continue. In addition to the book, Lindner also acted as curator of an exhibition that will be on show at the International Maritime Museum in Hamburg from June 5, to February 2, that is likewise entitled "Flight Across the Sea.
