The Refugee Phrasebook is a multilingual tool for refugees who just arrived in Europe that provides basic useful vocabulary and sentences related to the most common immediate needs. It currently contains vocabulary in 28 languages, this way it can be of assistance even in case of deportation. The book is a project of Berlin Refugee Help, a collective of volunteers based in Berlin.

Refugee Phrasebook ist ein mehrsprachiges Booklet mit Vokabeln und Phrasen, um Ankommende bei der Orientierung nach der Einreise zu unterstutzen. Das Buch enthalt arztliches Vokabular in 28 Sprachen (von Herkunftslandern der Gefluchteten und anderen EU-Landern).
