Students in Berlin mark Maaveerar Naal with awareness exhibition

Tamil students in Berlin held an awareness exhibition last week, as part of commemorative events to mark Maaveerar Naal this month.

Students at the Technical University of Berlin held the exhibition over several days last week as part of an awareness raising campaign.

The exhibition was part of efforts to explain “who we Tamils are and why we had to leave our homeland,” one student told the Tamil Guardian.

“It was a great success,” said another student. “The students showed a lot of interest and we were able to increase awareness of our identity and our history”.

Tamils across the globe are holding a series of event this week, as the nation gears towards marking Maaveerar Naal on November 27th, where those who lost their lives in the Tamil armed struggle are remembered.

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.

Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
