It’s been weeks since I had a conversation with anyone and they didn’t mention the refugees. They’re at the top of the news and all that anyone seems to post about on Facebook any more.
There’s so much misinformation flying around, I’ve been trying to get at least some limited form of personal experience with the subject, so when I walked past the Hamburg Hauptbahnhof (central station) today, I decided to have a look.
Piles of luggage and donated water bottles. Young, tired volunteers in neon green vests, doing their best to make order out of chaos. Dark young men either talking on their phones or sleeping on the tiles. And hastily scribbled signs in English and Arabic.
