Germany and refugees
I have to write an essay about the German society (I'm studying European societies) and it would be very nice if someone could help me! I have some difficulties to find informations because I don't speak German.
Here are my questions:
Do you think German people are more open to welcome refugees (than other nations, for instance: France) because of the place associative activities have in Germany?
I mean, there's way more associations in Germany than in France, especially humanitarian associations and German people are more inclined to volunteer, to donate, maybe that's why they are more OK to welcome refugees than French people.
German people, through their associations, seem to be used to help each other. So, helping German people or helping refugees, what's the difference? Am I wrong?
If someone has an example of a German humanitarian association, an usual one, it would be awesome!
