Germany. Refugees crossing the border to Germany.

Germany, Freilassing, Bavaria, October 01, 2015, Groups of roughly 10-30 refugees are allowed to cross every hour from Austria to Germany. Once Germany receives the groups, they are given a brief physical check before being taken to a renovated furniture shop in downtown Freilassing. Here they will wait again, for their next destination point in Germany. Najoua with her father Jinad waiting on the border in Germany after their physical check. Jinad from Hama in Syria lives with his family 1.5 years in Turkey. Now he wants to go to Norway. Germany has reintroduced border controls with EU neighbors to try and regulate the flow of people moving across their borders. At least 800,000 refugees are expected to arrive in Germany this year. During our two-day visit to a rural southeast border crossing of Austria and Germany, up to 2,000 refugees were estimated to have crossed into Germany by rail or foot.
