as part of the Robert Bosch Foundation’s India – Germany Media Ambassadors program to see how refugees are trying to integrate into the German society This process goes much beyond just learning the language and knowing the customs and traditions While some are trying to keep their culture alive in a foreign land others are building a case for talented migrants in a society that is ageing fast While some hope to go back home when the situation improves others prefer building their lives anew in Germany This article is Part Two of the five-part series which will explore the stories of refugees living in Berlin Read Part I of the series here “There’s only one thing I want to say at the end of our tour Don’t let fear control you Don’t let fear rule you” said Iliyas as he concluded the walking tour standing in the middle of the Gendarmenmarkt in downtown Berlin This square in Berlin apart from being architecturally marvellous is also symbolic of the German attitude of letting in outsiders and making them feel at home The imposing French cathedral on the northern end of the Gendarmenmarkt was built in the 1700s by the immigrant community from France-the Huguenots And it stood right opposite a Lutheran Protestant cathedral of the German natives “The Edict of Potsdam had ensured the protection of the Huguenots’ religious freedom and civil rights” according to the official Gendarmenmarkt website And that was in the year 1701 It is no wonder then why Iliyas and Mohammed two Syrian refugees living in Berlin decided to end their walking tour at this spot Whether it’s 1701 or 2017 being open to outsiders has been in the DNA of this German city for a very long time Did I just say walking tour Berlin and Syrian refugees in the same sentence Walking tours are generally meant to give you an overview of a city and are most likely conducted by locals or someone who has lived long enough in a place to know it like the back of their hand But here I was being shown around

2016 and 2014 respectively Mohammed is one of founders of the Refugee Voices Tours a walking tour company which shows you Berlin through the eyes of the refugees In this case Syrian refugees But the thought of twoSyrian refugees giving a walking tour of Berlin had me confounded still How does that work out So on a sunny summer afternoon just outside the Mohrenstrasse U-Bahn metro station I met Iliyas and Mohammed along with a bunch of native Germans and foreigners from the US and the UK Dressed in a dark gray T-shirt and black jeans Mohammed informed us off the bat that it would not be a regular walking tour but one that would try to give us a bit of both the German history and the Syrian history The four stops would be: the Federal Ministry of Finance building Check Point Charlie Topography of Terror open air museum and Gendarmenmarkt If one goes purely by timelines you are criss-crossing between the 1940s and the 1990s as well as going all the way back to the 1700s That was unconventional to begin with After the first stop the format of the tour became more pronounced Iliyas and Mohammed would be drawing parallels from Syrian history at these points of interests in Berlin Berlin: 17 June 1953 |Syria: mid-70s onwards Incidentally the tour was on 17 June – a date that is so important in the history of Berlin that they have one of their mainstreets and a square named after the date On 17 June 1953 the working class population of the erstwhile East Germany collected in groups all across the country demanding freedom of speech and better economic policies It was a peaceful protest movement and at least 40000 protesters gatheredin front of the Federal Ministry of Finance building which used to be the headquarters of the former East German government before reunification Things came to such a blow that people started demanding resignation of the East German government in effect the Socialist Union Party or the SED In response the SED took the help of Soviet tanks to quell the uprising It led to the death of at least 40 peaceful protesters at least 400 more were injured and by the evening of the same day at least 700 others were arrested Till date there isn’t any legal closure to the case nor anydefinite idea of the number of casualties A blown up photo of the protesters laid in the courtyard and surrounded by memorial wreaths on the day was in stark contrast to the East German propaganda mural plastered on the wall of this Communist-era building – a mural which showcased working class utopia "The message from the government was clear: If you protest against us we will use the most violent means to shut you down Something similar happened in Syria in the late 70s when Hafez al Assad (father of Bashar al Assad the current President of Syria) came into power" said Iliyas According to Iliyas in the late 70s Syria witnessed a similar civil uprising against Assad’s anti-people policies The propoganda mural used by the DDR is still
