Is it true that people who are recognised as refugees in Greece are allowed to work in Germany?

No. The rule is that citizens of non-EU countries are not allowed simply to enter the Federal Republic of Germany and work there. They must apply for a work visa before they enter the country. This also applies for holders of a travel document for refugees issued by another EU state, for example Greece.
