Germany has grown wary of the so-called wave of refugees, Germans afraid of the lack of integration. The RefugeeGuide aims at combating the integration gap and gives an overview of life in Germany.
Brought to life in September 2015 by Michael Strautmann, the little booklet serves as a compass for everyday etiquette in Germany. It is currently available in 17 languages for refugees arriving in Germany without any access to governmental integration programs and can be downloaded free of charge at www.refugeeguide.de. The initiative works solely with volunteers, academics and translators, and has included freshly migrated refugees. This way it hopes to include all information that refugees require upon arrival, without being condescending or arrogant.
