Days like these make me #ProudToBeHuman -My hometown Verden, celebrated the German National Day 2015 (03 October) with a Welcome Party for Refugees at the town house square.
This blog post will have few words but many pictures because A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS. And these pictures will describe #Willkommenskultur that Germany stands for.
If you wonder what Willkommenskultur is, check out this description by the Guardian: “Willkommenskultur means ‘welcome culture’ and is a word not born of custom but created to establish one.”)
And if after all these beautiful pictures, you wish to see even more from the Herzlich Welcome event in Verden, check out this video:
P.S. I am especially proud that my school junior Catherine Lohmann came up with this amazing idea! I really wish I could have been there…
