Christina Neuwirth: My time on the frontline with refugees at the 'Train of Hope' in Vienna
Christina Neuwirth, a project officer at Scottish PEN, recounts her time at Hauptbahnhof, Vienna, with the 'Train of Hope' refugee organisation
A POLICE officer turns to me and says: "Make sure you get as many people as possible on this train. The situation can change overnight. You never know what the politicians might decide tomorrow."
It's 5pm, Saturday, 5th of September. I am sitting in Vienna Hauptbahnhof, at the improvised headquarters of Train of Hope, a voluntary refugee aid organisation.
