A year ago, Save the Children published the full version of my story of traveling with the Syrian family from Budapest through Europe, eventually ending in Hamburg. They did a beautiful job building out the back story with an interactive map to illustrate the mom's interview. So here it is-- The Refugee Crisis: Through The Eyes of One Family.
This family is wonderful and they are one of many. Getting to know them launched me into a new direction with my photography as I started Brother's Keeper International, a website & blog to tell firsthand stories from refugees and people who are in community with them. My friends and I started Liebe bewegt, a running group for Berliners, old and new and we ran together in the Müggelsee Half-Marathon. Follow Brother's Keeper on Instagram for more personal stories from inside the refugee crisis - after the refugees are no longer in crisis.
Wedding, Berlin: If you duck into an open doorway or wander into one of many inner courtyards, you will find peeling signs of forgotten businesses as well as clusters of current ones, especially obscure artists, handworkers and other surprising ventures. 22/11/2013
