Folding didactic with refugees in Germany and Austria — 5 Comments

  1. I am folding Origamis with refugees since last July in Belgrade, Serbia. It relaxes all of us, makes us smile and we communicate about future plans. While folding the cranes, I also teach them German. I never ask them about their war traumas – it’s the future which gives them hope. Creating it – like creating Origamis.
