Wroclaw

THE HUMAN LIBRARY

Poland is experiencing a wave of demonstrations and attacks against refugees and immigrants. In this environment, popular initiatives and NGOs emerge to fight for a more tolerant and multicultural Poland. One such these projects is Wroclaw’s Human Library, an educational proposal that turns people into books - living books with a common denominator: discrimination. The reader who borrows one of these books will discover stories of people who, due to their race, sexual status or religion have been rejected or labelled by society. In a country that is little accustomed to diversity, this library is an opportunity to combat discrimination.
