After 75 years, Germany is again transporting thousands of people in trains to the four corners of the country. This time, the passengers are riding toward a new chance for life, not to death camps. Kudos to the German people.
As a German American it makes me proud that my mother country is responding to the desperate needs of the refugees.
It will surely change the country, but then Germany is used to accepting people from the East: Hungarians in the ’50s fleeing Communist Russia and the Turks coming to Germany since the ’70s and ’80s.
It’s one big melting pot!
