Héros sans visage

Faceless Heroes

Brussels, Béguinage church: migrants organize a hunger strike to obtain their papers. One man dies. Tunisia, Choucha camp on the Libyan border: refugees tell of the horrors experienced as they crossed the Sahara, heading north. Liège, in a refugee center: one man remembers how he crossed the Mediterranean on an inner tube. Three instances in a war for survival.
