Refugees reach Munich

Happy Refugees, 7th September 2015

 

"Munich mayor: I don't think about numbers, only refugees' safety

Southern German city has become a gateway for people arriving via Austria from Hungary (...)

Germany is not asking how many refugees it can afford to shelter, but how it can make the new arrivals feel safe at last, the mayor of Munich said as the city prepared to register thousands of people (...) Cheering crowds greeted the new arrivals and handed out toys and chocolate as they filed off trains and into tents for basic medical checks.

They are then taken by bus to conference centres, school halls and other large spaces that have been pressed into service as temporary housing centres, part of a complex system for managing the influx set up almost overnight."
