Starting on the International Literacy Day in 2015, the German Publishers & Booksellers Association, the Frankfurt Book Fair and LitCam introduced a joint initiative for refugees with the slogan “Books say welcome”. With the help of donations from the book trade, reading and learning corners are created in order to give refugees quick and easy access to educational and reading material. The project will be continued in 2016: At the Frankfurt Book Fair 2016, exhibitors will present their "German as second/foreign language" as part of the new collective exhibition “Books say welcome” in Hall 3.1.
