Anas Aboura, in Hamburg as a refugee himself, is one of the organizers of the karaoke night and other events: "At a movie night, it is easy for people to start a conversation. You watch the movie, and then you talk about it."

"Many people have said that it isn’t possible, but we persevered. We don’t wait until we’re given an opportunity - we take them. Integration is not a one-way street; it has to go both ways," says Larry Macaulay, founder of the Refugee Radio Network.
