How the smell of fresh bread transformed one refugee life

New York, Jan 12 (IBNS): Who would imagine that the smell of fresh bread wafting through a bakery could change the course of a young Syrian refugee’s life?

But that is pretty much what happened to Mohamad Hamza Alemam, when the 23-year-old Syrian refugee sheltering in Germany, walked through the door of Privatbäckerei Wiese bäckerei.

Initially he started working there to learn German. But over time as his language skills improved, he began an official assistant apprenticeship, mastering the basics of breadmaking and how to run the shop.

“When I go back to Syria one day, I hope to take a little bit of this German culture, this German bread, with me”, he says.
