Gabriele Goettle

Homes on the Front Line

How it feels to be displaced

Gabriele Goettle uses literary reportage to highlight the consequences of the acute crisis in the housing market. What is the real impact on families who have nowhere else to go? What does the battle for adequate housing mean for the individual?

At a time when rented properties are considered “concrete gold” by predatory international financiers, when there is widespread privatization of public housing and a neglect of social housing, many people find themselves simply unable to pay their spiralling rents. For those suffering sleepless nights over rent arrears or imminent rent increases, home is no longer a place of refuge and repose.
The threat of eviction or the loss of a home affects not only recipients of benefits or low-income groups, single parents or impoverished seniors. Middle-income households are increasingly in the firing line. Tenants of business premises have fewer safeguards and are even easier to target.
This book gathers together the stories of people given notice to quit their homes and those evicted. It conveys the extent of this social catastrophe as families resign themselves to their inevitable fate. Confronting the reality of displacement, it also bears witness to solidarity and resistance.
