We got use to see images of refugees arriving Europe and news of the bad conditions which they face in European sole. However there is not exposure on the mainstream media about the current situation of the ones who stay in Turkey and in the refugee camps at the Syria-Turkey border, the forgotten between the forgotten, the ones who did have enough money or resources to head towards Europe, the poorest, the ones who most probably have the darker future.
One of the route choose by asylum seekers is the Aegean Sea from Turkey into Greece. Before they arrive to northern Europe, being Germany one of the main destinations, refugees and migrants have to face a journey which add another chapter to their drama, but this time in European soil, crossing the Balkans.
International organizations as UNHCR claim that “If there were more legal avenues for refugees to reach Europe, perhaps some of those who died at sea could have found peace and safety instead”
