Bearing witness: We highlight things that shouldn’t be and document injustices. We amplify the voices of the people we met on board, share their stories and let the team of SOS Humanity as well as the civil society speak their mind.

Stories, reports, interviews, and portraits

Refugee stories

By documenting the experiences of refugees we want to bear witness and bring attention to the consequences of the inhumane European policy of sealing off the central Mediterranean. Here survivors have their say – and therefore the people who far too often only appear as numbers in anonymous statistics.
