Why do we wish to contribute to the project “Sprachräume – Büchereien für Integration” as a sample library?

As this question arose, numerous reasons came to our mind:

First of all, memories of these horrible images popped up, which were presented in the news. For some older people, memories of personal experience as refugees came to their mind.

Now these people are here and they are feeling excluded and helpless. We have the opportunity to create an atmosphere of “arrival”, because, we do have the potential and the knowledge. From an economical standpoint, our country finds itself in a prosperous situation. As Christians, this circumstance obliges us to help. In this way we now get the opportunity to say “Thank you”.

We should keep in mind that it is of advantage for us Europeans, to support these traumatised refugees and to create a new home for them.”
