Tolerance and diversity are integral values of German society. With “We are Germany”, Deutsche Welle (DW) is taking action to defend these values and speak out against social prejudice.
Famous personalities from German society have banded together to support tolerance and diversity for DW’s new photo campaign, “We are Germany”. Each segment will portray two famous faces from German public life.
Participants will include World Cup champion Jérôme Boateng, former figure skater Katarina Witt, conductor Daniel Barenboim, comedians Hape Kerkeling and Kaya Yanar and violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter. Also participating are journalists representing all of DW’s 30 editorial languages.
DW is hopeful that this initiative will help start a global discussion and invites people from around the world to participate by uploading tandem portraits, which will be featured on a special website.
