Trains of Ukrainian refugees were welcomed in Berlin’s central railway station by crowds of German citizens.
After arrival, the refugees were provided with food, drinks, and phone sim cards. Translators, medics, volunteers, and organizers were present to help with their transition.
Crowds of German families stood and opened their homes to arriving Ukrainians. Homemade signs were held up, indicating who the house was available to.
Every refugee was able to find a home to stay in, with more German families offering places than Ukrainian refugees arriving.
One mother waited at the airport with her daughter, holding a sign saying “”One mama, two kids, four-six weeks.”
