Gov't tests Czech reaction to Syrian refugee family
The organizers of the Czech government's HateFree Culture project recently sent a Syrian family with a small child to the Central Bohemian town of Kolín and some nearby villages to test local people's reactions, which showed to be mostly positive, the project's coordinator Lukáš Houdek told the Czech News Agency today.
The experiment took place three weeks ago.
"Our expectations proved true. Face to face with refugees, people help them and show solidarity, though, judging by their utterances on the Internet, they may seem xenophobic. We are not that bad," Houdek said.
