Since 2000, more than 27,000 migrants and refugees have died attempting the perilous journey to Europe. With an unprecedented number of people breaking through its heavily barricaded borders in 2014, the EU continues to fortify its frontiers.
VICE News presents Europe or Die, a new four-part series that documents the efforts of those risking their lives to reach Europe, and the forces tasked to keep them out.
In this extra scene from ‘Death Boats to Greece: Europe or Die,’ VICE News correspondent Milène Larsson visits a cemetery on the island of Lesbos, where those Syrian and Afghan refugees who perished en route to the European island on the notorious “death boats” are unceremoniously buried.
