Franz  Alt - Refugee


The bestselling author on famous refugees who have culturally and spiritually enriched our world

The history of humankind is a history of refugees. Every refugee, however, is more than just one more worker, more than a further taxpayer and payer of pensions. Each one is also a cultural and spiritual enrichment.

2,000 years ago, the emigrant from Nazareth was only able to survive because his parents fled to Egypt to escape the child killer Herod. His life and teachings have benefitted the entire world. In our day and age the Dalai Lama, the charismatic religious leader, has become what Barack Obama has called "the spiritual teacher of the world and a powerful example of tolerance" after fleeing from Tibet to India in 1959. We must not lose our Christian and humanitarian memory.
