unfortunately, we cannot help you and especially the Syrian refugee in Athens. There is no legal way for Syrian refugees in Greece to enter Germany (apart from the one mentioned below). He has no family here, no German education or working contract, etc. Therefore he has no right to stay in Germany based on national or international law.
If he sees a possibility – by whatever means – to come to Germany, he can apply for asylum here. This is likely to be granted. If he is already registered in Greece (with his fingerprints) or has filed an asylum application, he does not have to expect to be deported back to Greece (in case of a possible negative asylum decision in Germany).
Sorry that we can’t help more there. Just try to stay in touch with him on a regular basis and try to build him up emotionally. At least he is safer in Greece than in Syria….
