FROM BELGIUM TO MOROCCO
Fifty years ago, Belgium signed a migration agreement with Morocco. The ‘guest workers’ of those days now have children, grandchildren, and in some cases great-grandchildren in Belgium. Yet, they did not cut the ties to their homeland. Every summer, entire families travel between Belgium and Morocco. This ritual is more than a holiday: it strengthens family ties, brings the past back to life, but also reaffirms their connection with Belgium; a connection in space and time.
