Refugee Voices in City Hall (Hamburg)

Also inspired by this photo exhibit at the Rathaus (city hall), smack on the central plaza of the city of Hamburg, Germany, featuring the faces and everyday stories and interests of just a few of the more than 35,000 refugees welcomed into the city of Hamburg alone since 2014. As you can see, the city hall lobby is a public place for tourists and visitors. When I was there, a peaceful rally on behalf of diversity and tolerance within the European Union was taking place amidst ice cream stands, clowns, and panhandlers in the plaza just a few steps away.
