Bashar Alale, new life in Europe
Bashar Alale is a 25 year old Syrian boy who left his native city of Maarat an Numan in August 2015 to escape the civil war that has been raging in Syria for more than six years. Like others, he did it alone and moved by despair and the search for a future in peace.
He crossed the Aegean Sea by boat from Turkey to the Greek coast and crossed the Balkans route to Rostock, Germany, where he now lives in a reconverted residence in a refugee shelter. “On the trip I risk my life, but it was worth it“, he confesses. He was lucky, only a few months later they closed the borders after the European Union agreed with Turkey in March 2016. “I am happy here, I have met many people and the city is beautiful, but I pray for the war to end and I can come back and reunited with my family“.
