The Refugee Crisis

I just returned from 2.5 weeks in Europe, traveling with photographer Gary Gnidovic on behalf of Books and Culture magazine. My job is to write a report on the European refugee crisis. Gary and I visited Germany, Austria, Croatia, Serbia and Greece, more or less tracing backward the path for most migrants. I interviewed many refugees and many people helping them; I tried to understand the situation from the ground level. It was an amazing chance to see a world-historical event as it unfolds. I was challenged and inspired  and sometimes depressed by what I witnessed.

Books and Culture has published a couple of short posts I wrote while traveling; here’s one. You can follow that to the other. But the big article comes out in May. I’ll let you know.

    Is there a way that I can post this on Facebook as I have a lot of friends that would be interested in this? I am also all ears for ways that I can help out these refugees. Thanks for your heart and your willingness to go and see and report back. Tim, you are such a blessing. Kathy
