Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The ZWST (Zentralwohlfahrtsstelle der Juden in Deutschland) has been helping Syrian refugees. They are popular for a reason you probably didn't guess.
"This [immigration counseling] is an open offer for people coming to Germany with the will to stay here," said Günter Jek, who coordinates the ZWST's intake centers. All of its counselors speak German and Russian, and some Syrians, along with some other potential immigrants from Middle Eastern countries, seek out the ZWST with the help of Russian-language skills learned during higher education abroad.

"Funny as it is, Syrian refugees visit Jewish counselors because they speak Russian," said Jek.
