Many people try to reach Europe through Niger and Libya and across the Mediterranean. But they are exploited and abused along the entire route, and often don’t make it there anyway. Even those who finally do arrive in Europe are often forced into prostitution, earn starvation wages and face deportation from refugee camps. Reporter Anne-Frédérique Widmann traveled with migrants in Niger, Libya and Sicily. She met penniless minors who were injured, traumatized, clueless and soon to become fodder for the sex trade. Widmann also talked to European officials, aid workers, human traffickers, overwhelmed police officers and frustrated rescuers who are no longer permitted to come to the refugees’ aid at sea. Yet at the same time, viewers can also sense the unwavering hope of people who are certain they will find a better life in Europe. ——————————————————————- DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.
