Frankfurt - The daily war for crack and heroin at the train central station district - Frankfurt - The daily war for crack and heroin at the train central station district. The hell! After 8 years from my previous reportage in the district, I decided to re-enter the hell, the Frankfurt red light district, the neighborhood of the desperate... crack smokers and heroin addicts. The distric is practically a quadrilateral, Gutleutstrasse, Gallusanlage, Mainzerstrasse, Am Haupbahnhof. The most degraded part, the center of hell, is the small sub-quadrilateral Mainzerlandstr.-Elbstr.- Taunus-Am Hauptbahnhof, where the Niddastrasse is cutting this area right in the middle. Since 2016, the days of Merkel immigration programme has started, the situation around the quadrilateral has drammatically worsened. A jamboree of people coming from different nations are living there in very poor conditions and consuming drugs in daylight. I spent in the district hours, days, maybe "all together" months. I know many of those people by name. I was the only one allowed from the people there to take pictures in that area. Few weeks ago, when the public German TV start a reportage in the district, they almost started a revolt. The police was forced to intervene..

Frankfurt - The daily war for crack and heroin at the train central station district - The city's cleaning workers are in action in the neighborhood 2 or 3 times a day. These street sweepers can clean the streets of the neighborhood only with the help of the police. Here while they clean in front of one of the drug assistance centers in the neighborhood escorted by police, because many addicts and dealers hide drugs in the cracks of the pavements or between the cars... in the most unthinkable places. Drug dealers therefore "run the risk" of seeing hundreds of Euros fly away...
