immigrantsWhat do migrants choose to take with them when they leave their homes and families forever – to help remind them of the life and the people they left behind? (I picked up this from an online resource  promoting global learning)

In Memento, a moving two-part documentary broadcast on 2nd October, the BBC meets four refugees in Britain who had to make that tough choice. For Fazli, an Afghan child refugee, it’s a pen given to him by his father. And for Fungayi, a political activist from Zimbabwe, it’s an mbira – a traditional musical instrument that reminds him of better times. They tell their stories through the keepsakes, or mementos, they treasure most. Find out more, and listen to the programmes at the BBC World Service website.
