People are living in tents and children have to be wrapped up in blankets to keep warm.

It may be hard but they are in an area they trust. These people will return to Syria when the war is over.On the other hand, many go to Europe to find a better life. These people may not return to Syria when the war is finished because they may have built new lives in EuropeSome people believe that the refugees should not leave the camps. Others think that they should be allowed to go to Europe. What do you think?

Root to Germany from TurkeyTextDefinitionsSchengen area - made of 26 countries within the European Union, it is an area where no passport controls affect where people can go.Greece financial crisis - right now Greek banks have no money in them. They are struggling to pay their debts.

Day 3Refugee weekRemember to bring your cakes to school on Friday!

From the camp to Serbia via Greece The journey to Greece can go across the Mediterranean Sea, which is very dangerous, or go via the land, which takes a lot longer. Greece is not a great place to be because of the Greek financial crisis, so there is an incentive to move on.And when they arrive in Serbia they are stuck at the border.What now?The Serbians do not want them in their country and eventually they are moved on to the next county.Their plan is to get to Germany but from behind this fence they can't go anywhere. They have to wait for trains or free buses to collect them.But while waiting for the transport, many of the refugees have died of exposure to the cold and wet. They have to live in cardboard boxes, or just sit in the rain, as very few people in Serbia want to help the refugees.

Even more waiting Finally the refugees have found a hole in the fence or been moved on by the government.Now in Hungary, the Hungarians want them out as soon as possible, which local politicians have made very clear. They are often sent to stations to wait for trains that never come, surrounded by military personnel.Others are just marched by the army straight to the border with Austria https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5ForZ3cr6QEURO NEWS TextDo Not forget just dance at lunch!Arrival in Germany Once the refugees arrive in Austria they choose different paths, some go to Spain and France and other Schengen area parts of Europe.Many go to Germany. Some to stay with relatives, whilst others have to make a new life from scratch.The world they are in now seems so completely different from Syria. Their journey has been 3500 km or 2200 miles.

ALL they Want is safety and to work. We take these things for granted.They just need help.

What if it was you?How would you feel if you had to leave your country, home, friends, family?How would you feel if every country you went to closed their doors to you?How would you feel if no-one wanted to offer you a place of safety?How would you feel without a home, food, clothing, water?
