Aim and scope of research
Since November 2014 we have initiated a thorough advocacy in central and northern Europe, where we met refugees whom we first became acquainted in Eidomeni, we helped them and became their friends. Therein-after, we record and present their lives in European countries where they so desperately wanted to reach, thus completing the history of their journey. The library project is but a tool for a thorough analysis, research and completion of the imprints of Europe's biggest refugee crisis.
