BERLIN, GERMANY - SEPTEMBER 08:  A Roma family from Romania arrive at the Berlin Central Reception Facility for Asylum Seekers (in German: Zentrale Aufnahmeeinrichtung des Landes Berlin fuer Asylbewerber (ZAA)) to apply for refugee status on September 8, 2014 in Berlin, Germany. The Berlin facility, even though it recently hired additional personnel, has been so overwhelmed new applicants that it closed its doors on September 3 in order to process backlogged applications and only reopened today. Many German cities are facing a surge in the numbers of refugees arriving from abroad, especially from Africa, Syria and the Balkans.  (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)
