  • 00:05:00 In this section, the transcript excerpt highlights the challenges faced by refugee children in Greece. Many of the children do not have access to education as the classes are conducted in Greek, a language they do not understand. The lack of resources also prevents them from pursuing their interests, such as reading. Sarah, a refugee child, expresses her frustration and the feeling of being stuck without any hope for a better future. The excerpt also touches upon the difficulties faced by refugees in seeking medical care, as even a simple visit to a doctor in the city proves to be extremely challenging. The excerpt concludes with the host's reflection on the dire situation faced by these children and their families, questioning why more help is not provided and why Greece, a relatively poor country, is left to handle the responsibility of refugee support alone.
  • 00:10:00 In this section, the interviewer meets with Mr. Chinas, a EU politician, to discuss the difficulties and delays in the EU countries coming to agreements regarding refugees and their rights.

The interviewer further explores the lack of collective action in the EU by highlighting organizations like "Ärzte der Welt" that try to fill in the gaps through initiatives such as a clinic in Athens that provides free medical treatment to refugees, including children. The clinic faces challenges as many of the children have never seen a doctor before due to their long journey as refugees. However, the clinic's doctors work diligently to provide necessary care and vaccinations. The interview highlights the importance of such organizations in addressing the medical needs of refugees, and the gratitude of the families who rely on their services.
  • 00:15:00 In this section, the speaker discusses the importance of providing good medical care for all children, whether they are refugees or not, as it is a fundamental right.

They mention that they are filling the gap until EU politicians come to a solution. The next organization mentioned has been providing education and tutoring in Greece for 30 years and has expanded their programs to offer special courses for small groups of refugee children. The goal is to provide these children with a good education and a sense of normalcy after their difficult journey. The children express the importance of education and the opportunities it provides, and they are grateful for the patient and supportive teachers at the organization. The article ends with a reflection on the lack of opportunities and hope for children in refugee camps who do not have access to education or a better life.
  • 00:20:00 In this section, the speaker reflects on the lack of access to education for refugee children and emphasizes the importance of education as a fundamental right for all children. They mention a quote by Obama stating that the right to education should apply to all children worldwide, and express their sadness that many refugee children in Europe are unable to attend school. Through their journey in Greece, the speaker has witnessed firsthand that simply having the rights outlined on paper does not guarantee their implementation in real life. They stress the need for more individuals and politicians who are dedicated to advocating for children's rights and ensuring that children like Bartl, Obama, Abdallah, or Sarah can have a normal life and a future. The speaker argues that Europe should uphold the rights of children, as it is supposed to be a defining characteristic of the region, but unfortunately, this is not the case for many children. They assert that this should not be happening anywhere in the world, especially not in Europe.
