The gates of Fortress Europe are firmly closed in 2020, leaving only a few loopholes. At few places refugees do manage to cross borders. One is the Greek Aegean island of Lesbos, which has become a focal point of the eastern Meditarranean migration route. The largest refugee camp in Europe is located on the island. Conflicts emerge on the spot. At the end of February 2020, parts of the island's population turn violently against refugees.
An attempt to document this moment.
