People are lying on the ground all around the train stations. They are all calm, calm and ready for the EU adventure, for a future in uncertain, on a completely foreign continent, with a different alphabet, different laws, different traditions, different beliefs; thinking that they will never have to adapt itself to all that. Because in a democracy, freedom of expression, enforcing one's own laws, traditions and religion is finally allowed. That is the strength and also the weak point of the EU

Afternoon at the main train station in 2015. A couple of men and women in Red Cross uniforms smoke and talk in front of the first aid point. The pregnant women who are still in the room are examined one by one by someone who acts as a doctor. One by one they go back to their beds crying because they were told that their children died in the womb. Some eight young men are given the vitamin injection.The rescue volunteers said they all died of fatigue and muscle failure.

The most of the people hope to be able to help someone in need by throwing the things they no longer need into Caritas boxes. They do not even think of helping an unmanageable organization to get money and thus power. Because Caritas employees do not give that things to the needy for free, but prefer to take them home for themselves or friends. Two people and a child, a small family, made the application for asylum. But Caritas did not help them.

A young man runs down the stairs, looks around frightened, runs up the stairs again. The Red Cross volunteers laugh at him and said that he is just a madman. But he was desperately looking for his passport. After a few hours of research, it turns out that another young man from Afghanistan stole his passport. As the only Afghan between Syrians, he was afraid of being discovered and killed. If he could apply for asylum in Austria, he will give back the passport to the other boy. And he did that.

Only people who applied for asylum were brought down in this house. A kindergarten was also organized, which was "looked after" by some volunteer women from the Red Cross and Caritas. Many of the supervisors were mostly strange. A woman had been crying incessantly for hours, in front of the young volunteer in Red Cross uniform who seemed to be having a party. When looking for her passport, a young Syrian came with two thick rolls of one hundred dollars and said he found it in the men's toilet.
