Worldwide, more than 60 million people have been displaced from their homes, according to the United Nations refugee agency UNHCR. Nearly one million refugees from many parts of the world arrived in Germany in 2015 alone. Most of them will stay. One crucial task now will be to effectively and competently integrate these people into our society. In particular, learning German quickly is vital because language opens the door to education and training.

Proceeds of the evenening go to the Til Schweiger Foundation, espacially language courses for refugee children and refugee adults will be sponsored by them.

Private individuals and firms can sponsor tickets for school classes. Price per ticket: €15. Receipts for donations can be provided. Please register at
