WILLKOMMEN!

Germany's "welcoming culture" faces an unprecedented test as German citizens grapple with a fear of outsiders and a feeling that the government has forgotten them.

While studying abroad in Bonn, Germany, I wanted to know just what was going on here! So I interviewed pastors, a mayor, a reporter, and two fellow students from Syria.

In this documentary that echoes the U.S. Presidential Election, stories of "willkommenskultur" emerge in conjunction with a love story to a beautiful German city. Germans are trying to find their footing with a bold, hopeful step forward. We can all learn from them.
