From September 2015 through March 2016, a total of nearly 30.000 refugees from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and other countries in the Middle East, Asia and Africa, who fled to Europe via the Mediterranean Sea and the Balkans, came to Cologne from the german border towns of Passau and Freilassing. They arrived in special trains by Deutsche Bahn at the train station of Cologne/Bonn airport, where they got medical treatment, food and warm clothing by volunteers, before they were transported by busses to official refugee camps to start the procedure for granting the right of asylum. The picture is part of a long-term documentation of the so-called Drehscheibe (turntable) and the work of the volunteers, translators and staff members.
