The “Balloon” (Airdome) as it is called, is one of the better shelters in Berlin and hosting about 250 people. Everybody there has their own history, their own tragic story that forced them to leave their homes in search for a better future.
“I left Syria because the war made life very difficult. I left so I can complete my studies and live a safe life, just like other people. The long way to Europe was very hard for me. I’m 17 years old and hope to be able to start a normal life again soon. Thank you and Germany also.” – Ibrahim
