German Of The Day: Notfall

That means emergency.

Notfall

And in case of emergency (whatever that might mean at this point), the German City and Municipal Association (Städte- und Gemeindebund) has recommended to its members that they should refuse to accept any more refugees. These communities are already overwehlmed as it is.

Funny how associations like the German City and Municipal Association are always the last ones to figure things out like this. It has been my impression, and the impression of everybody else I know here, that German communities have been in a state of emergency since 2015.

Der Städte- und Gemeindebund hat die ungleiche Verteilung von Flüchtlingen auf die Kommunen kritisiert. Dadurch würde die Integration der Menschen behindert.

  1. You would think so. But the first “emergency” made it necessary to let them in in the first place. At least according to those who called it an emergency. Either way, to refer to the quote, these emergencies are effective ways to erode “the safeguards of individual liberty” and circumvent the laws of the land.
