Many thanks to Nash Montana for translating this report from Politically Incorrect:
Insider report by an ex-refugee relief worker:
On Friday [August 20] a former refugee relief worker published a post on Facebook about his work with migrants. He was in the field for three years.
Now, for the first time, he reports about his daily experiences with “refugees”. These reports are very valuable. On the one hand, we learn from an involved person who has, for months, experienced situations, and the person’s stories are trustworthy and credible accounts of horrible circumstances. On the other hand, no one can accuse the person of being a “right wing agitator” attempting to exploit and/or instrumentalize the reality of it.
In the end, the farewell was much easier than I thought, which is probably due to the exponential climb of my frustration, on all levels.
I have given up on my voluntary work as an assistant to refugees and migrants.
The many thousands of hours during which I tried to supply real help turned out to be utterly useless. Along with me, three other volunteer workers have also quit. There was no single defining incident. I had begun to notice that, for months, my work was senseless. Senseless in that the majority of the people with whom I dealt did not want to integrate. Senseless because the politicians actually consider integration to be unnecessary, as they merely need institutions and ghettos that are expected to return fat financial gains. And senseless because we helpers were left alone with our problems at work and we were shamed when attempting to discuss the topic of the racism that had been shown to us (and German society) by so many refugees. Real problems that required immediate solutions were being downplayed and sugar-coated. Female colleagues were spat upon just because they were women. And, coincidentally, on the very day it came out that I am Jewish, a tire on my car was slashed.
Men and youths for whom we had (after a lot of convincing) found internships at various companies often quit after just one day because eight hours per day of work was “too long” for them. Regardless, the money continued to come in, and the catering, maintenance and care were guaranteed. Intolerance of religious minorities led us to having to abort approximately 50% of all of our projects, in order to avoid escalation. I could go on and on. The worst of it was that the politicians never even had a plan for successful integration. The responsibility for integration was dumped on us, the helpers. There were disruptive behaviors that made it impossible for us to achieve the peaceful “togetherness” in which we had invested so much of ourselves. These behaviors were never met with any consequences, nor were the perpetrators held to any level of accountability.
Everything remained exactly the way it was. Nothing ever moved. Nobody seemed interested. They would rather be silent than risk social ostracism. I am worried that our society will experience a monumental shift to the right because the pot will boil over in the next election. Perhaps that is what they want. If it is, then we are on the right track. There are those who warned last fall that we will have no choice but to confront these problems, which are essentially social dynamite. Not only are these individuals excluded from discussion rounds, they are actively accused of being responsible for these problems, by having pointed them out for so long that they became self-fulfilling prophecies.
But when one does the same thing over and over and expects a different result, then that is a form of insanity. My experience over three years of volunteer work shows me that this is where we stand. I have abandoned all hope.
