The European Refugee Crisis in Pictures ...

By Neecey

Europe is no stranger to refugees. The continent is attractive due to its accessibility (unlike the Americas) and its stability. I personally remember the Vietnamese “Boat People” arriving in Britain in 1978 and 1979 and pictures of the current refugee crisis provoke the same emotions. While refugees from many countries have been steadily streaming into Europe for decades, the current spotlight is on those fleeing war-torn Syria. Whatever your own views or political bias, you can’t fail to be stirred by these photos.
Warning: Some of the images are disturbing.
