Barb passed along information (from Bruce Shortt) about the German teen homeschooler who was admitted into a mental institution, and an English-language site about the Busekros family.
Homeschoolers and other concerned individuals are encouraged to contact German officials about Melissa's plight and air their concerns. However, I am unclear as to who does and doesn't speak and/or read English. I'd contact the person listed at the end of the web site, first, and ask her (Elisabeth Kuhnle) for suggestions about appropriate contacts.
In the meantime, we can continue to spread the word and expose this troubling human rights violation.
