Refugee Crisis

MetaFilter user the man of twists and turns has collected 79 (!) links to articles about the refugee crisis in his post ‘you’re ‘fugees now’ from lots of different sources in different countries.

I’ve only started reading them, and working through all the material will probably take days. Still – recommended!

Some articles are in German or are available online in both English and German:

Boston Globe:
The Big Picture: Perilous Crossings.

” “They just keep coming,” I thought as I stood on the northern shore of Lesbos in Greece. Raft after raft landed up and down the coast of this enchanted island. It was surreal. This set the tone for the next two weeks, following the route of refugees and migrants looking for a better life. I was moved to tears watching a young boy gather as much bread as he could carry at an aid station, and I was truly inspired by the men who dived into the sea when their engine quit, pushing and pulling their raft to the rocky shoreline near Skala Sykamnias. At times they walked for miles in unbearable heat, not necessarily knowing where they were but knowing it was better than the world they fled.–By Boston Globe photographer Craig F. Walker”.
