SPUREN EINER MISSION – Tracks of a Missionary

TV presenter Katherina Deuber searches for traces her great grandfather has left in Ghana. More than hundred years ago he came to the African west coast to work for the Basel Mission. Furthermore, he met his wife there who accompanied him ten years after at his return to Switzerland. Are there actually any proofs for Arnold Deuber’s stay in Ghana? Are the achievements of the Basel missionaries still visible today? The journalist begins to research in conjunction with Hans-Ruedi Roth who has lived in Ghana for more than 60 years. Their search starts at “Basel Street” in Accra.
