Refugees Camping in the Rain in Munich

The Bavarian capital saw some of the worst storms of the year during the past few days, and during that time over two dozens of young male refugees were camping outdoors with only a roof over their head and without shelter from the rain that poured onto them sideways, reported yesterday evening, July 12, 2016.

The refugees made of video of the conditions they have been exposed to and you can view their video by following above link to Abendzeitung Munchen. The young men from Afghanistan and Pakistan fled from their assigned refugee shelter in the District of Traunstein in Southern Bavaria to the Bayernkaserne on the outskirts of Munich six weeks ago and have been camping in front of Munich’s biggest refugee community ever since.

They are located right in front of an unused hanger, but aren’t allowed inside, because the authority’s fear that this might create aprecedent which other refugees might be encouraged to follow. The young men had left their assigned shelter in Ruhpolding (Traunstein District) because they felt bullied by a supervisor there. They accused the man of opening their letters and handing them out late. They also said that the food in Ruhpolding was spoiled.

There are currently over 1,000 refugees placed within the Bayernkaserne, a former military facility. The facility was constructed between 1936 and 1938. After World War II it was renamed by the United States forces to Henry Kaserne in honor of Private Robert T. Henry. Tt was transferred to the German Bundeswehr and finally bought by the City of Munich. Refugees won’t stay there permanently, since the City plans to build flats on the grounds.
