Idomeni – Refugee Lost Highway

On one side of the Greek-Macedonian border lies the Greek village of Idomeni. It’s nestled between rolling hills and the local population stands at about 150 people. Walk one kilometre east from the village and you will find 13,000 refugees and migrants living in tents and improvised camps. Many of them have made their way from war in the Middle East hoping to find sanctuary in European Union countries such as Germany and Austria. The influx of refugees is particularly acute in Greece. With little information passed on to refugees, many find themselves in limbo. Now that Macedonia has closed entry, many are uncertain of their future.
