People on the Move

People on the Move is a common theme in history and heritage. People have been on the move throughout history to escape poverty, famine, plague, war, unemployment, pogroms and political and religious persecution. People have left their homes in search of a better standard of living for themselves and their families. People moved from rural communities to towns, people crossed borders within Europe, people left Europe in search of a better life; people came to Europe from the rest of the world for the very same reason. All these migrations have contributed to making Europe and the world what it is today.
