The search for stories continues. This time in refugee asylums across the country.


🎉 De Niemanders Gazette Launch Party! 

On November 23rd, it’s happening. The Niemanders Gazette, printed in an edition of 10,000 copies, will become a reality. There will be ample time to explore the newspaper extensively, accompanied by live music, snacks, and drinks at Rozet, Arnhem. The celebration begins at 4:00 PM. Do you want to be there? Register (for free) and join us in the festivities!

Picture this: a room in Rozet, the bustling library in Arnhem, filled with more than twenty people from every corner of the Netherlands, from places like Grave, Arnhem, Nijmegen, Zutphen, Balk, Leeuwarden, Assen, and even as far as Goes. These individuals come from diverse countries such as Yemen, Egypt, Russia, Syria, Turkey, Kurdistan, and Sierra Leone. They are refugees, residents of asylum centers in the Netherlands. They are ‘niemanders,’ and they all have one thing in common: they have a story to tell

Within this diverse group, you’ll find journalists, artists, writers, photographers, and creative minds coming together as the editorial team of The Niemanders Gazette, both a printed newspaper and a website. They all worked hard and passionately this past summer to share their stories.

The Niemanders Gazette

What can you expect in The Niemanders Gazette? A variety of engaging content, including an article about ‘waiting’ in an asylum center, a photo essay highlighting the daily life in an asylum center, a profound analysis of the Turkish elections, and compelling stories depicting the dangerous reality of fleeing. But also, touching and hopeful stories of ambitious residents of asylum centers, full of achievements, joy, love, and sorrow. You’ll find facts and figures, but also a fascinating glimpse into life in an asylum center and portraits of the professional lives of refugees before they had to flee. What would you do if you were in control?

“Countless stories are waiting to be heard, if only they are given a chance.”

– Rocco Ostermann
