Christians and Yazidis living in refugee hostels are increasingly being victimized by radical Islamist refugees. Security guards often just look the other way. Aid groups are calling for separate housing for Christian, Yazidi and Muslim refugees.
The Yazidis are a religious minority in northern Iraq whose people have been persecuted by the "Islamic State." One Yazidi who fled Iraq and sought refuge in Germany shared his story with InfoMigrants.
Stuck in refugee camps after fleeing IS, Yazidis have few options, especially since the Middle East's most vulnerable people have been excluded from international migration talks. Diego Cupolo reports from Sharya, Iraq.
Shirin, an 18-year-old Yazidi woman, writes about the terrors she endured in captivity of the Islamist terror organization "IS" and the consequences it still has for her as a refugee in Germany.
Thousands of refugees in Germany are converting from Islam to Christianity, although it could carry a huge personal risk for them. Independent churches are especially seeing many new converts.
