E in a young refugee, a hamburger couple, a dinner ... and then there's Labskaus. Ironically! The one-minute film by "Welcome Dinners Hamburg" and the Hamburg director Gaullo shows the difficult topic of integration from a completely new and humorous point of view.

"Welcome Dinner Hamburg" already conveys for two years dinner between hamburgers and refugees. More than 2000 guests were already able to experience the hospitality of the people of Hamburg, practice German and eat together. Hundreds of friendships and tandems have sprung up - most hosts and guests stay in touch after dinner.

The idea for "Labskaus "Director Gaullo had the rest after a private welcome dinner in St. Georg:" I think it's important that we approach, listen and tell about the new Hamburgers with openness and curiosity. A dinner together is a small, perfect start for a great, common task. All the better, if it tastes everyone and you can laugh together. And Labskaus is just a challenge - just like integration ". Producer Akku Hallerbach was immediately enthusiastic: "We would like to support this voluntary work and simple and fascinating contact possibilities."
