#Syria #refugeecrises #Germany

So does Reconciliation look like Germany taking in as many Syrian refugees as they can? For a nationality that bears the guilt of driving many (mostly Jews) from their homes as refugees in not just Germany but many countries. Reconciliation might look like this. France, who has experienced much political strife is also taking a … Continue reading
