The family of Diana had been ordered by the German authorities to live during their asylum procedure in the district town Hofheim near Frankfurt.
There were two hostels for refugees. These were houses built in the past in a simple manner and poorly equipped for migrant workers, but in the meantime not more used by them.
In Hofheim were living already other Armenian families and singles. Most of them planned to immigrate to USA and Australia, where they would find big Armenian communities, many friends and relatives. In Germany they were able to contact without problem the respective consulates and ambassies.
