In summer 2015, an unused hangar in the former Tempelhof Airport was converted into emergency accommodation for refugees. Temporary walls were installed in the vast empty hangars, which saw over 32,000 people come and go over the course of a few years—a good third of them children. The lockers that stand here date from that time. The residents, who lived here for up to twenty-seven months, used them to keep valuable things, souvenirs, and memories out of the not very private, overcrowded, and noisy facilities. For the Living the City exhibition, these lockers’ compartments have been filled with the stories of people and their paths to Berlin and beyond.
