Accommodation of refugees
“When we can help, we do so”
The pictures go out all over the world. As tens of thousands of refugees arrive at Munich central station on the weekend of September 5, 2015, help is needed—quickly and straightforwardly. Within just a few hours on that Saturday, staff of Messe München convert two exhibition halls into a provisional shelter for refugees. Two weeks long, a total of 17,000 persons are accommodated here. “When we can help, we do so”, says Klaus Dittrich, Head of Messe München.
