No Direction Home is the latest publication of the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation’s Office in Greece. This publication includes 235 photos of 30 Greek photographers capturing the refugee experience. The war zones, the survivors, their passage to Greece, the dead people in the sea, the trapped lives at the hot spots, the fences in Idomeni, the squats’ experience, the despair of the Balkan route, the camp at Calais.
On this occasion we invite you on Thursday, April 27, 2017, at The Box, Doryleou 12, Mavili Square, Athens (Metro Station Megaro Moussikis) to the public discussion:
