Out of Afghanistan: The Boys Who Walked to Europe


The stories of Afghan boys as young as 13 - nobody knows how many there are - who flee the violence they have known and spend up to a year on the road trying to reach Europe, and new lives. From The Guardian.

"Every Afghan minor who has survived the endurance test that reaching Europe entails has a story of equal parts courage and grief. Some of them are too frightened, or too traumatised, or simply too young to be able to explain the forces that have borne them here."
