PODCAST

STORIA DE NHAS PAIS

In 2014, young Cape Verdean Rotterdammers conducted interviews with Cape Verdeans who had arrived in the city between 1955 and 1975 and had built an existence there.

In 2021, Maxime Schut, a student of International Studies at Leiden University, studied six interviews from 2014. She also interviewed seven Cape Verdean interviewers on why it was important for them to participate in the project. Thus, a collection of interviews was formed on image and sound, transcribed and sometimes translated.

With the podcast, attention is drawn to this collection and to the history of Cape Verdeans in Rotterdam, but also to the importance of preserving these kinds of stories for future generations.
