The Border

→  commander un tirage papier

On September 15th, 2015 Hungary finished erecting a barbwire wall along its border with Serbia
Unable to enter the EU throughout this gateway, thousands of war refugees and economic migrants moved on to Croatia to reach their destinations: Germany, the UK or Sweden
They waited for several days for means of transportation at the small Croatian border-town of Tovarnik. Meanwhile tensions caused by exhaustion and frustration increased
Many families were separated by chaos and the lack of organization.
Between September 15th and October 1st 2015, over 90,000 people passed through Tovarnik to reach the European Union
