Interactive exhibit on refugee crisis opens in Skopje


An exhibition depicting the hardship of refugees from warn-torn countries experienced in the past two years on their journeys from Turkey and Africa to Balkan countries and to Central and North Europe opens Monday in Skopje.

The experiential and interactive exhibit, running until November 29, is part of the project Small Room of the Helsinki Committee for Human Rights and NGO Legis.

The project aims at raising public awareness about the issue facing refugees with an emphasis on several aspects of the crisis, namely the scale of the humanitarian drama, the power of solidarity, the threat of uncontrolled actions of illegal groups trafficking humans and its impact in the asylum-seeking process in Europe, the urgency of actions by the authorities across Europe, active engagement of young people, etc.
