Emergency Entrance at Berlin Metro Stations

On a recent visit to Berlin I spotted these 'Emergency Entrance' signs at ticket offices in metro stations. The local public transport provider BVG uses them to inform passengers that their staff will help protect them from racially motivated attacks by providing safe havens in their offices. While the idea is honourable and useful, it is rather sad to think that in a liberal country such as Germany there is still a need for these signs. GG
