Greece: Moria: Logbook of horrors


In the smouldering ruins of the Moria refugee camp on the Greek island of Lesvos, a journalist found a logbook kept by employees of the International Organization for Migration tasked with looking after unaccompanied minors. Although unaccompanied children were housed in a so-called "safe zone", entries in the book reveal it to be anything but.

Moria: Logbook of horrors (Investigate Europe, link):

"We found a personnel logbook in the ashes of Europe’s most notorious refugee camp, Moria, located on the Greek island of Lesbos. It shows the horrors that unaccompanied minors were left to endure, documented by the people who were there to protect them—even as they often felt unable and helpless to do so. It’s a first-hand document of Europe’s failure to protect the most vulnerable group of asylum seekers. Since the fires in Moria in September, the situation for minor migrants in Lesbos has only become worse."
