Migrants struggle to make Germany new home

African migrants, who passed through Lampedusa and made it to Hamburg, say their rights are being ignored.

    When the war in Libya broke out in 2011, African migrants found themselves in one of the following scenarios: trapped, locked up, and accused of being mercenaries.

    The few lucky enough to escape fled to the Italian island of Lampedusa and eventually made their way to Germany.

    Reporting from Hamburg, AlJazeera's Nadim Baba examines the challenges facing those African migrants as they attempt to make Europe their new home.
