When #refugees started arriving in Weimar, Germany, the city put out a call for donations. “Every 2 minutes, a car was coming,” said Margret Aurin, who was then in her final year of university. She got caught up in the frenzy and took charge of a clothing shop, which at first gave out items to anyone in need. But city officials shut the operation down in December 2015, citing security concerns and organizational problems. For months, she fought to reopen the shop, and in May, they gave her permission for a trial run — but she had to charge money rather than give items away. The city shut the store down, again. By then, Margret had refugee fatigue — or, at least, an aversion to struggling with German bureaucracy. Instead she took a job with Arrive, one of more than 1,000 programs in #Germany aimed at integrating refugees, organizing buddy picnics for them and locals. “In the first months, everybody was excited, everybody wanted to help,” she said. “Then nothing happened, so the enthusiasm died.” @limauricio photographed Margret, one of the people @nytimes journalists met during a months-long look at integration in #Weimar.
