I am afraid.
When I walk the streets and see blue-and-red election posters, I feel sick.
When I hear other people shouting anti-immigrant slogans, I get angry.
And when I look at the result of the last election, I feel afraid.

63 years of peace in Germany.
63 years with no slogans, no shootings, no concentration camps
and no fear for one’s own life.
Have we learned nothing from this period?
Is it so wrong to give to others what we now have?

Not so long ago
German children fled to Britain, German families to America.
And today many long for “the good old days again”.
Which good old days?

Were we better-off then than today?
Can’t we take a little bit of fear out of other people’s lives?
