Lacuna: an empty space, a gap, a missing part.

Lacuna is bringing together the stories of those who make this world a better place – the dreamers, the creators, the survivors.

We think stories help us to find out who we are, to remind us we are not alone, and to reveal our shared humanity by shifting the focus away from what divides us to what we have in common.

We know in order to do so we have to honour all perspectives because they are vital to get a full picture of the world we aim to change.

“I hope that Jewish life will become normal in a diverse society”

The narrative of the history always portraysthe Jews as victims who have experienced anti-Semitism, who have always suffered. People talk about the period from 1933 to 1945 and then perhaps about the Israel-Palestine conflict. But very little is said about how Jewish people have shaped the German society-- how many artists and scientists were Jewish. There are a lot of Jewish women in Germany and Austria who ran their salons and had interesting personalities.

As journalists it is our responsibility to monitor the power of the government

There is a moment during the Hong Kong protests that I will never forget. Last October I was going to photograph and do interviews during the protests. Suddenly, the police advanced and shot tear gas at the protestors. So the protestors ran away but one of them stopped in the chaos and asked, “Do you need help?” I told him, “I am fine and I can take care of myself. It is very dangerous, you have to run.” The situation was becoming messier, so the protestor pushed my wheelchair and helped me to leave the death trap.
