A piece in the G about European natives hosting people who've fled the conflicts in the Middle East and Afghanistan.
"Linnea Tell, a single mother and librarian, hosts Syrian artist, Alqumit Alhamad, who is now thriving in Malmö. Alhamad, 24, fled Raqqah in northern Syria in 2012 when Islamic State made the city their headquarters. Friends were tortured by Islamic State militants and many homosexuals were thrown off buildings in his home town. Alhamad moved in with her in May 2016. ‘I can’t tell you how much my life changed and how free I feel. Every day I wake up and say, “Oh my God, I am in Sweden”. It’s magical.’"
