A German woman is protesting the eviction notice she received informing her she has until the end of the year to vacate the government-owned apartment she rents in order to make room for migrants who have arrived seeking asylum.
“I think it’s a scandal to throw tenants out of their apartments,” Gabriele Keller, 56, told Germany’s SWR television. “I can’t see the sense of it.”
Britain’s Daily Telegraph reported that Keller has lived in the same home in the city of Eschbach for 23 years and has now hired a lawyer to fight the eviction.
According to news reports, she was told that she was being asked to move because building a new shelter would be too expensive for the municipality. Instead, the building will be converted for migrant housing.
Europe is facing the most challenging migrant crisis in decades, as countries scramble to cope with the influx.
