Refugees / Flüchtlinge
Nothing ever changed.
In Germany there are many political uprisings containing the situation of refugees coming to europe especially to germany.
What happened in the last months in Germany was that people got threat by the idea of refugees living in their neighborhood. They demonstrated. The were afraid of criminal incidents and scared the wouldnt be safe anymore. On one hand I can understand their fear. On the other hand: honestly. These are victims of (mostly political) persecution. They left their homes, families and everyone the love to LIVE.
And what now? Full of hopes they come here and people demonstrate , burn their houses.
Are they really safe here now?
I cannot fathom what happend to them at all. I didnt have to leave my home.
But I feel ashamed.
PS: the newspaper you see in the picture is from 1956. I found it in one of my grandpas books this summer. I t also deals with the problems of refugees - not as sweeping as this discussion is today, but maybe that was good.
