My photo essay on Lesbos is included in the recently published book Beyond Survival, written by Jenny Schuckard and Kilian Kleinschmidt, published by Dumont Reisen. Jenny tenderly recorded the stories of twelve refugee children and teenagers, what they had to leave behind, and how they made their arduous journey to Germany. Kilian, who has long been hands-on involved in refugee work, provides the background information we need to understand what makes people leave. What’s unusual about this beautifully written book is that it's geared towards younger readers and their parents. A reading took place on Dec 19 at Grüner Salon in Berlin.
