Aid for Boatpeople from South East Asia (1979)

The fate of the south East Asian boatpeople is one of the biggest issues in 1979.

Since the withdrawal of US troops from Vietnam and the victory of the North Vietnamese communists 1.5 million people—primarily from Vietnam, but also from Laos and Cambodia—have fled their home by boat.

While the USA and France—who used to support of the South Vietnamese anti-communists—declare that they are willing to receive tens of thousands of boat refugees right away, Germany is a bit more hesitant. But disturbing coverage about the overcrowded refugee boat “Hai Hong” that was stranded off the Malaysian coast for weeks without any supplies, unleashes a never before seen wave of solidarity among a broad spectrum of the society. Especially journalists and Christian democratic politicians advocate the reception of the boat people. Minister President Ernst Albrecht personally makes sure that 1,000 people are allowed to enter the Federal Republic of Germany without any bureaucratic fuss. The journalist Rupert Neudeck and other like-minded people like the writer Heinrich Böll establish the private relief committee “Ein Schiff für Vietnam” (“A boat for Vietnam”). With its help and that of many donations the cargo “Cap Anamour” is turned into a medical boat and sent on many rescue operations in the South China Sea. The German weekly newspaper “Die Zeit” also launches a large-scale relief campaign. Soon, many companies, organisations and private individuals offer their support for the refugees—ranging from accommodations, language instruction, jobs to adoption. At the UN-Indochina conference the Federal Republic of German, which up to that point had mostly provided monetary relief, finally agreed to welcome 10,000 boat people. One year later the new “law on contingent refugees” provides a legal basis. The number of these so-called contingent refugees is gradually increased. In the end almost 40,000 people find a new home in Germany.
