I’ve just been reading through stories of Somali refugees in Europe, told through the medium of a graphic novel. The art is beautiful and the stories themselves are fascinating and very moving. I’ve never thought about the process of asylum before; the thing that struck me the most was how much of life’s richness is taken away an what a waste it is of peoples lives and talents.

I highly recommend you go and have a look at this project, and take a few minutes to read even one of the stories.

Somalis in europe
The stories in Meet The Somalis were told to author Benjamin Dix and drawn by artist Lindsay Pollock. They are found on the Open Society Foundations website.
