The refugee crisis continues and thousands of refugees and migrants are still crossing the border between Austria and Germany every day. 26.253 is the official count for last week, this means that an average of 3.750 refugees are entering the country each day. Well over one million have been registered this year, and there are also hundreds of thousands that haven’t been registered. However, experts point out that according to experience less than half of the refugees who come to Germany will remain permanently in the country.
According to new polls for the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper, decision makers in Germany (MP’s, CEO’s of the largest companies and others) are considering the large number of people coming as something mostly positive. But, as a large part of the German public, they are asking for a more open discussion on the subject in the country.
Results of other recent polls show signs of a comeback of the “German Angst”. The term refers to the phenomenon that the Germans supposedly tend to worry about the future.
