Host parents, here’s an awkward question; read it and you’ll see why.
"I am in serious consideration of making a match with an au pair from Germany and have a question to ask you or your readers. When we were discussing her arrival dates, she mentioned she did not want to depart from Germany during the first two weeks of August due to her parents taking a journey for "Nazi Advocation". I tried to probe further about this "journey" but she quickly avoided the topic and would not elaborate as to what this journey is all about!
I am not sure if this bears ties to a religion of some kind (she is Protestant) or if this is something that most Germans take part in and should be dismissive in nature when considering her abilities as an au pair. I don’t want to overlook a red flag and I have tried my best to google and am coming up short on finding any further information on this topic. Any readers out there that could provide feedback from the German au pairs as to what this journey is about would be much appreciated! Many thanks in advance."
