Forget about the translation into English,
even in German the meaning of the wo
rd “Heimat” is widely discussed. Therefore I am presenting here my own definition or rather explanation of it.
“Heimat” connotes the place where I was born, where I grew up, and above all the places and the people who influenced the formation of the “me” – overall, there is a sense of belonging.
This idea of Heimat gives me a sense of belonging and anchorage and is at the same time fluid, elusive and continuously on the move. It seems to be a steady re-invention of where I belong and who I am.
