“Well-functioning” German social system

I am sitting at my table and don’t know where to begin. It is very difficult to describe my current feelings. To be honest, my soul is really overfilled with negative emotions and my head – with depressing thoughts. All because I became very disappointed with the country I idolized...

Rejection guaranteed!

I live in Germany since I was 20 years old, now am 40. I was born in the city of Nis in Serbia. I came here with my family because of the war. I do not know whether I’m happy or not…it does not really matter. I’m homeless, plus Roma....

Everyone should love his country… but I cannot

On that evening we decided we must escape somewhere or …we would be killed. One could not stay there anymore. The Taliban soldiers came to us, as always, without being invited. To the question why my elder sister was still living at her parents’ and didn’t have a husband and children, my father gave...

My second home

Hello there, my name is Marina. Originally, I come from Maykop – the capital city of the Republic of Adygea, Russia. It is a very peaceful place, where the sun shines almost all year round and it never rains. Probably, that’s why I am always so cheerful, easy-going and actually...
