THE PAST IS A WOUND IN MY HEART

THE PAST IS A WOUND IN MY HEART is the story of the immigration of labour force from Turkey to Germany fifty years ago. Mehmet Ali Zaimoğlu is an immigrant who went to Germany in 1961 as a worker. When he was retired after 40 years, he preferred to live in Germany. TRT sent an invitation to 50 immigrants in order to revive the first train journey from Istanbul to Munich in 1961, which is also a symbolic start of the immigration to Germany. Mehmet Ali Zaimoğlu is among the retired immigrants who had joined the first journey and received the invitation. The new journey means a new adventure for Mehmet Ali Zaimoğlu. His wife also joins him in this journey, where the couple will have the opportunity to travel also to their past along with the new excitements and close friendships. The cheer and happiness of the new journey will accompany the sad success story of the couple. The train leaving from Turkey passes through Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia and Austria. It arrives in Munich in five days, where a surprise awaits the immigrants.
