Topic ARCHIV - Eine Pflegekraft hilft einer alten Frau beim trinken aus einem Becher in einem Seniorenheim in Frankfurt (Oder), aufgenommen am 15.02.2011. Mehr als jeder zweite Bundesbürger (52 Prozent) macht sich Sorgen, bei Pflegebedürftigkeit finanziell nicht genug abgesichert zu sein. Mehr als drei von vier Bürgern (77 Prozent) sehen die Pflegeversicherung dafür grundsätzlich nicht als ausreichend an. 82 Prozent meinen laut einer am Mittwoch 23.11.2011 in Berlin veröffentlichten Allensbach-Umfrage vom September weiter, die Politik müsste in Sachen Pflege mehr tun.

Terror Trial - neo-Nazi Beate Zschäpe charged with murder

German federal prosecutors have brought charges against Beate Zschäpe in 10 murder cases. She is the sole surviving member of the National Socialist Underground, a neo-Nazi group suspected of committing the crimes. It's a vindication for the families of the victims. They are hoping the trial will reveal why the right-wing involvement in the xenophobia-fuelled murders went undiscovered for so long.

Seeking Shelter - Syrian refugees eye asylum in Germany

In 18 months of civil conflict in Syria more than 400,000 people have fled the country. The streams of refugees across Syria's borders continue to grow. Foreign policy experts from all parties in the German Bundestag are calling for some of them to be granted asylum in Germany. But the Foreign Ministry says that any decision by Germany must be within the scope of EU regulations.

Should Germany take in Syrian refugees?

Mainstream Greens - how broad-based is Germany's Green Party?

The once-revolutionary ideas initiated by the Greens, such as the phase-out of nuclear power, have moved into the mainstream. They are now widely espoused by a well-educated, high-earning segment of the electorate. Take the southern German university town of Tübingen, for example. Boris Palmer of the Greens has been mayor there for years.

Care Crisis - German pensioners in Eastern European nursing homes

Costs of caring for the elderly in Germany have risen sharply. Because many retired people can no longer afford long-term nursing, families are seeking cheaper alternatives outside the country. That's why some care-dependent patients have ended up in nursing homes in Slovakia, for example: hundreds of kilometers from their homes and relatives, and where the staff rarely speak German.
