12:30 pm
time for good news to go at africa people and projects that are changing the land fire meant for the better it's up to us to make a difference let's explain each other. the way the farming magazine. long t.w. . when i'm german and proud of it boys and that's a good reason to become a policeman was a silver. being german doesn't just depend on your passport and the day i dreamt in german i knew i had arrived as she entered. emiliano has received a visit from the chairman of the allotment association he's happy to welcome
12:31 pm
emiliano as a new member but points out that any extensions of the summerhouse will require prior permission this of our hearts it's tough but it's so typically german was exist. back. dresden demonstrations take place here on mondays as people protest the government's policy on refugees and at what is seen as foreign infiltration of germany. i'm just waiting for some politician to have the guts to assume responsibility and say with total conviction germany first i mean leon i was lived in germany for thirty years and has german nationality he knows who concern that the political mood in the country has changed. to make some tidy lloyd light in a way i feel sorry for these people talked i see it here every monday and for two years now the demonstrations. have all been the same it was with the same slogans
12:32 pm
it's nothing changes you still haven't seen any real dialogue partly because it's impossible to talk to these people. we do know to inspiration in one thousand nine hundred sixty million or originally came to what was then the german democratic republic as a guest worker the plan was for him to have four years training and then return home you know because you know we were made aware of certain things that we were guests and so should behave like yes it's otherwise we'd be sent packing and since you're not from here we were told you're not allowed to saying anything you know people forget that we no longer have any ties with the countries we came from originally that where we live now is the focal point of our lives a simple. as a specialist foundry worker i mean i had no job prospects neither in mozambique nor in germany after german reunification many people in the east feared for their livelihoods and vented their frustration on foreigners. has been attacked three
12:33 pm
times because of the color of his skin but then the us and the ones at the front started to shout we haven't had a fire here but there's a nigger and he is black and then they started kicking me more turned up that and they also wanted to attack me but i took to my heels right off mission last game and. i was afraid that if they caught up with me they would throw me off the bridge to me said everything done continues fundable pistols. but emiliano stayed in spite of the hostility. he retrained as a male nurse and he has been working on the board of the municipal hospital for more than twenty years. you know he's even been on the staff council today he's the right hand of professor clash at the operating theatre. with an animal farm. this is i mean ya know knows exactly which instruments professor steinbach needs and plays an important role in theatre but has he ever had any
12:34 pm
problems with patients. is going to situations i find unpleasant someone once told a colleague that they didn't want me to treat him but the response from my colleague was that if that's the case they should transfer to a different hospital and. that's about it everything ok you. know. fifty year old emily arnaud's responsibilities also include patient care i was ok everything's fine the last one hurt a bit then now we are. uncertain what of us if there was another occasion when i collected a patient from the operating theatre as he was coming round from the anaesthetic and he looked at me and said oh f. am i in africa and of course we all laughed and then it is only going to.
12:35 pm
the tranquil village of sean doff in southern germany is where izzy lives she came here from ghana nineteen years ago she'd fallen in love easy trained as a cook but here she specializes in baking artistic cakes. her exceptional creations have made her name among her german customers. intimation been ordered to meet demand when i'm amongst people and doing something with them i sometimes wipe my hands and think oh they're totally different but that's not something that is uppermost in my mind i live as a human being and don't bother my head with things like that i think it is sad. that this woman has come about the forthcoming international festival this year they want to have cards with nice sayings on them in various languages so i could possibly write something in garn a end and in german. ones don't stand point out that there is no garland
12:36 pm
language garner could have as many as fifteen different languages she said she'd be willing to write something in her mother tongue. isn't it and what's important is to have the original language and then a german translation to get people talking to one another. busy has supported the festival again xenophobia for many years even though she herself has hardly ever experienced racism martin her husband is active in the church so he knows a lot of people and this is opened many doors so. busy always likes to be on time oh. yeah. he's ian martin got to know each other in ghana where he taught for five years at a christian vocational college a.z. who was trained cook became his housekeeper their friendship ripened into love but reason spoke against it
12:37 pm
a twenty six year i age gap and two totally different cultures the two even tried to stop seeing each other but i just couldn't. imagine this. and martin is a wonderful person. he has tremendous patience and is so caring. excuse me on how sad it is near. these a tiers of joy. to divide to have she's the other half of me perhaps even the better half as they say for later that the better hefty humans like. hundreds of guests celebrated their wedding in ghana but a.z. was shouldering a burden after fathering three daughters martin had had a vasectomy several years before. i think and i was in ghana a wife with no children is inferior feel in tears also depicted as
12:38 pm
a failure in african culture yeah that's the. darkest in many villages when a woman who has died childless is being buried by the body is still turned over in the coffin and all i've had to show that she's had a barren life. is to see. life without children would have been difficult for is in ghana so she accompanied martin to germany into the unknown. in lieu of borg twenty nine year old wayne has finished work for the day a year ago he started training to become a policeman it had been his dream but as i've on that's a fantastic profession that enables me to help people i really enjoy the work i love my country i love germany and for me personally that was also
12:39 pm
a reason to join the police source of the mission prison officials it's a change of career because he when used to be a social worker in a shelter for the homeless and also a street worker. ok. there are going to be wayne tells these youngsters that he has only been working as a policeman for a year so he's still new to the job nevertheless he says don't get up to any mischief. if you know she down one live says it to be a case of black power. or dogs in the same germany is so many things to me it's my home totally and utterly i love this country and this country has so much to offer i believe that this is the best country in the world i would even say that germany saved my life. lots of money and get out of.
12:40 pm
the way and was born in cameroon his mother did not survive the birth so has sister took the infant in. she fought to keep him alive because he was seriously ill. also it was touch and go at all i could well have died it all. my surname is barrow and barrow also means abandoned or something like that. and also i never used the name. of and i think the family of my natural father my biological father has written me off completely. large and far as we know from his foster mother lived with a german doctor he took it wayne into his heart and adopted the boy the family moved to luna burke heath un's childhood was shaped by prussian virtues museum visits and beethoven god knows when to give he gave me everything that i am above all everything that is positive and i have the feeling that he is still there and
12:41 pm
that he continues to give me things. yes i believe that he is still there and that we are still working together as a team and that we are still together and. that is because his foster mother and left them and at times the way i was brought up just by his father nevertheless values like trust and solidarity had a huge influence on me wayne's childhood his father passed away seven years ago. this is something i always wanted to do show my father my police id but he passed away before i joined the force. it is for him too that it wayne wants to become a policeman yet in his youth he wayne could have developed quite differently. german traditions i mean we are now has leased a small piece of land for an indefinite period. three hundred ten square metres of
12:42 pm
what he hopes will prove to be a lot to mint happiness now he's awaiting important visitors from the board of the allotment association. the two have come to welcome amelia know to their garden association and to have a brief chat with him. so these are how this is one of the haydn quotes to come if you come from a very hot climate zone no doubt you'll be able to tell us about things we europeans will have problems with in years to come when less water is available. and. but first the rules. went on all night long a millionaire learns that the board applies a three third's principle one third of the allotment is to be used for cultivating fruit and vegetables another third can be used as a lawn and for growing flowers and then of course there is the house and so on if he wants to extend the summerhouse emiliano will need approval that means
12:43 pm
submitting an application to the board. and i'm costello no. importunate. people i know. that's tough but it is so typically german there's no way i'll manage without help in these i've been here a long time but all these rules. that's so german still i see it as a challenge this is something i wanted so i have to deal with it. from other stores . easy normally cook swabian style things like spetzler a type of pastor but for the international festival she and her daughter are preparing a traditional dish from ghana baked bananas and she gives her daughter a few helpful tips. oh my dear. daughter stephanie is now seventeen it also meant improved possible to reverse her father's were sent to me.
12:44 pm
stephanie stephanie is the miracle child we always wanted this is. we don't she is another of god's gifts. we always believe that if we had a child then that was meant to be. here for many people said you have got such a wonderful daughter why haven't you heard any more children but even one child is something we had never expected she is so special and we are so grateful that she is in our lives. fifty one year old is is also grateful for the open arms with which she was received in sean doff right from the start she's been on the local council for many years. i know a visitor is asked if he speaks english as it turns out he speaks french. with that of the man so i see. there kyra i can't i can't i don't know french
12:45 pm
yeah the girl like joe except that this is right. now yeah i mean vicky here. if you really want to live here it's vital to learn the language for me that was the most important thing of all and new arrivals are offered language courses it is essential to adapt to the way things are done here you can't expect him to come with your own culture and continue to live that way that's not on. he won't spend his youth in hamburg the hamza plant square at the main station is also frequented by drug dealers and prostitutes later as a policeman wayne could well have to work in places like this in the past the nearby area has seen several clashes between immigrate. and the authorities. the sourness the fit's not that hard to abide by the law of that no one expects you
12:46 pm
to adopt a german mentality or to live according to german customers. that's a wreck thing here anyone can live the way they want but within the law no one is forced to stay here if they reckon this isn't a place for them they can look for somewhere else but not in germany. kind of them had done a mortal from the borders on the way in came into contact with crime even as an adolescent he had to leave the sheltered world of the luna burke heath when his foster mother had him join her in the hamburg suburb of harburg he attended lower secondary school there together with his friend flo. as you know somehow i feel a stranger here often in fact i always have done it but now even more so in his neighborhood a wayne was also confronted with violence and hostility within his close circle of friends and on the streets to through music and by writing his own lyrics he
12:47 pm
managed to work through his experiences some of which were traumatic and i used to live up there on the first floor. my room was where the windows tilted on one occasion heard a loud bang and a few seconds later the place was full of ambulances and police cars i had no idea what had happened it was only when i read the newspaper that i learned someone had been shot dead. that's why it wayne wanted to become a good police officer and he is planning an anti violence project for young people . emiliano from dresden is also very committed fourteen years ago he helped found africa which was originally a contact point for migrants from africa today the association has a staff of fifteen and deals with a large number of refugees mainly from afghanistan and syria. a lot of
12:48 pm
refugees in germany are very afraid of being sent back to their home countries. is the most obvious lou just two possibilities either you just give up or you address your fear and accept what happens after all human beings also have something we call self protection that is the association aims to help refugees find training employment and social support but it present migrants who turn to crime are a huge barrier to integration does the what annoys me is that the media focus too much on criminal refugees and everyone else not only refugees but us to migrants who have integrated suffers as a result. obviously anyone who has clearly been engaging in criminal activity should be deported but the refugees we help should not be disadvantaged through this yet they're the first ones to be deported but not the criminals the end of life that makes me furious so we'll need to commit them to set up with muscles. the
12:49 pm
south german town of sean doff hit the headlines in precisely this way after claims that women had been molested and thousands of migrants had attacked the police at a public festival although they live in the middle of town izzy and her family didn't notice anything. in the press are actually talking about a state of emergency. stephanie you were in the park that even in. the currently there were around a thousand adolescents and young adults most of them with a migrant background tile me because in the coldest that's not true and everyone i spoke to agree that the. fake news or was there really a state of emergency in shaun doff. martin teaches at the refugee center and wants more detail. from his neighbor who was the festival's organizer. this was not
12:50 pm
our what we now know from police sources is that the writing was probably caused by two rival groups each comprised of around twenty to thirty persons fine but that is not absolutely certain they're said to belong to migrant circles and according to what the head of the police operation told me they've been attacking each other for quite some time on a flea flicker of a fight but what is claimed in the local newspaper and by the media worldwide that rioting adolescents out of control went on the rampage through sean doff that never happened after all this about fox leash the stock if. so because of the way this is blown out of all proportion it really annoys me and it scares people this heartens those who are willing to help for him and prevents contact as easting i am the sticky it's important not to tell everyone with the same brush. so
12:51 pm
if something like this happens we have to ask why mention valiant's meet the name gets which people are involved are they the refugees we encounter at school or in the community or some individuals who really are frustrated forced we had seen. a wayne is drawn up a training program to help youngsters guard against frustration and bullying that's why today he's visiting an eighth grade class in the luna park he's. so yeah the way it enjoys these meetings first to speak his fourteen year old torben he would like to obtain his school leaving certificate. on it to get in the line every two or nothing and that is also the aim of isabel who's also fourteen every tuesday afternoon well because of a school leaving certificate is a major goal to him for i first went to lower secondary than upper secondary and
12:52 pm
finally made grammar school in germany everyone has the privilege of going to school free of charge that's not the case in africa there you have to pay. it was always my aim to be different to be back said than what i was i wasn't happy with myself going to lower secondary school but a lot was with my mother always used to say you are black and in a white society we blacks have to prove ourselves as it was so basically every day life for me meant a constant struggle and you have to be good even though you aren't really good listeners. he wayne is spending two hours with the children they have to analyze one of his songs and write their own words on the subject of civil courage. and give us the music so you know it's real you've got to say important he says one of us will rap that and then you've all got to say important at this you know what i
12:53 pm
was born to this is for the cause you're. not here for your own why is there exhaust is civil courage important because we think it's right we can't ignore the problems of everyday life many people are left alone emissions in line hometime just click this through this project i also want to have a positive influence on german society is a show of. posters this means being reliable being honest and being decent he says those are the german values that are so important to doughton it has nothing to do with having blue eyes or blonde hair or any such nonsense blonde all mother garb on the hardness of bones and blue thesis values are important because they make sure that life in germany and in our society that goes on smoothly. several weeks have passed since emiliano took over the allotment he spent dozens of
12:54 pm
hours of his spare time working on his patch of land now the board are coming back to have a look. here and asked how he's getting on a medion is his biggest problem is keeping the. down jones was. going to find his own card as it was this is. the op he's planted some maize and also plans to plant pumpkin seeds of mice and about. corn. to knock up cobras group who understood all his visitors are impressed but then most surprised to learn that you can eat the leaves of a pumpkin in germany they say it is only the pumpkin itself that is even broke and all that that's in the leaves end up on the compost heap. cumbersome and it. wasn't done before he had his garden a millionaire used to ask for pumpkin leaves but he just got laughed at where he came from the leaves are
