Human Trafficking in Germany


National Review Online has a sad but important piece by Donna M. Hughes telling the story of two Russian women who were forced into prostitution in Germany, where the amount of professional prostitutes has doubled to accomodate World Cup demand. Prostitution is legal there, and many of the additional prostitutes are undoubtedly victims of human trafficking, mostly from eastern Europe.

Incidentally, here is a page on the website of the U.S. embassy to the Holy See that documents the joint US-Vatican efforts to combat human trafficking.
