European Parliament opens for the ill-treatment of children, parents and parents by German youth welfare offices (Jugendamt) and the system of German Justice.
Brussels / Keltern-Weiler.Heartbreak that could have been experienced nowhere else. In no movie you would ever be able to turn out a scene that would have seemed more authentic than what happened yesterday in Brussels, the heart of the Committee on Petitions of the European Parliament.
In her presentation, a mother collapsed whose child had been stolen by the youth welfare office. A deputy and Andrea Jacob came equal to the aid.
And now the really big thing that happened:
The President of the Committee on Petitions, Cecilia Wikström, left her place, hastened to meet the mother, led her out of the hall and she mothered. In the hallway she was kneeling, as though in front of a child deprived of mother, held her in his arms and soothed her until she could again began to breathe calmly.
Breathe calmly. We know what happened! Breathe calmly.
were the words with which she managed to relieve the pain —the pain of separation from her child, which was activated in the description that was so deep, so deep that nothing was left. Nothing more.
Yesterday the European Parliament, many MPs were present, who had heard the cry of the mother for her child.
Deep dismay shot through the hall.
Horror on their faces.
Testimonies of the torture of parents and children are getting louder.
The German MEP Peter Year: “It is bitter having to listen to what is happening in Germany: It’s torture!”
Tears streamed from the eyes of those who had experienced the suffering as well as the mother Lorrelay Reggentin.
Heiderose Manthey to the Chairman of the Committee on Petitions, Mrs Cecilia Wikström:
“So how did you go on your knees in front of this weeping mother, so I go in front of you on your knees. But not because you are the President of that committee, but because you are a human! For the first time in 18 years I have experienced the human assistance that tortured people need to be given. For the first time! God bless you!”
