Lighting up the path for refugee athletes A Syrian amputee swimmer ran with the Olympic flame through a refugee camp in Athens last Tuesday to highlight the plight of the million people who fled their homes for Europe since last year. Greece has been the main entry point into Europe since 2015 for the influx of refugees and migrants from conflict-ridden or poor countries in the Middle East and beyond. Ibrahim al-Hussein, who has been granted asylum in Greece, crossed the Aegean Sea from Turkey to Greece on a rubber boat in 2014 after having lost part of his leg in a bombing in Syria. Torch raised, a beaming al-Hussein crossed through a throng of journalists at the Eleonas camp, which hosts about 1,500 refugees. Germany to reward medal winners German athletes will receive up to 20,000 euros ($22,518) for a gold medal at this Augusts Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games, the German Sports Aid (DSH) foundation said.

‘I've tried to find a way to enjoy this life’: Syrian refugees one year on 30.4.2016 The Guardian -- Front Page
Last year, Patrick Kingsley travelled to 17 countries and talked to hundreds of refugees as they made the journey of their lives across Europe. What happened next? When Mohammad el-Haiba first spots his boyfriend Youssef outside the German train station, it takes him a few moments to work out whether to approach him. Staring back at him from the entrance, Youssef is just as confused. They stand there, several metres apart. Neither knows what to do next. It’s not that they’re not delighted to see each other. It’s just that this encounter, on a cold October day in a quiet town in Bavaria, is unlike anything they’re used to. Mohammad and Youssef last saw each other in mid-August in Damascus, the Syrian capital. Then Youssef left for Turkey, took a boat to Greece and made his way through the Balkans to Germany. A month later, Mohammad followed him. They knew they might never see each other again – and yet, six weeks on, they’re together once more. They’re in a peaceful country, where they don’t speak the ...

'It was life and death for us and it's the same today': Kindertransport children speak 30.4.2016 The Guardian -- World Latest
With the government refusing to let 3,000 child refugees enter the UK, Guardian readers tell how they escaped the Holocaust – and why Britain must step up again At a time when many people were trying to flee Hitler’s regime and the world was on the brink of war, the Kindertransport scheme saved thousands of children who otherwise would have been sent to death camps. Jewish and Quaker groups appealed to the then prime minister, Neville Chamberlain, and a bill was passed to temporarily waive the immigration requirements for unaccompanied children to enter Britain. Ten thousand children travelled to the UK. Today the government is under pressure to allow 3,000 refugee children displaced by conflict in the Middle East to travel to Britain. After a proposal was refused by a small margin in the House of Commons on Monday, peers passed an amendment calling for an unspecified number of children to be accepted. The measure will return to the Commons for consideration next ...
