MEDITERRANEAN: Writings on the wall

by Ramyar Hassani 

[Note: The following has been adapted from a piece originally appearing on Hassani’s Beacon page.]

In one of the events that I participated in on the Greek
island of Lesvos, I had the chance to see many writings migrants made to hang on the
walls of the welcome center in Pipka. A piece of paper on the wall may not be a detailed story but what I saw
delivered their pain. Here are some written by migrants from Afghanistan, Iran,
Syria, Sudan and other war-torn countries:

A handmade poster by a Syrian refugee


A writing by an Afghan refugee


An Iranian asylum seeker telling the story of why he had to leave Iran

Full translation of the previous writing in English


Another one by a refugee from Afghanistan

 

An Afghan refugee tells his story of how a taxi driver treated him


 

A Sudanese migrant explains why she left her home country 


Another victim of war says why he or she left home


By a migrant who was imprisoned without having his papers checked and how the police treated him.


A Syrian refugee simply says nothing he has left in Syria and everything has been destroyed but dreams remain.
