Diverse as human beings might be, they all have at least one thing in common. They are all migrants. From one time or another, the human beings or their forefathers have all come from somewhere else. Migration is a way of survival, it is a search of hope, of giving children a better future. In her work titled « Light of hope – Migration in the Swiss mountain region of Graubünden », Lavonne Bosmann has looked at the history of migration in the Graubünden, with particular focus on two very diverse groups of people situated in close proximity. The very small village of Medergen, that has a history of migration dating back to the 1300’s when the Walser people of Lötschental started moving there and established a community as well as the current day asylum seekers, temporary housed at Valbella, a previous ski hotel in Litziruti, just down the road from Medergen.
