Greece/Lesvos island/Burried in unname graves in Lesvos cemetary.More than 1300 immigrants lost their lives in Aegean waters in the last years.The Greek-Turkish (sea and land) borders are of particular interest as they constitute, today, the main entry route to southeast Europe for thousands aliens. Groups of bedraggled men, women and children from as far away as Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Somalia and various countries in Asia, the Middle East and Africa arrive daily with the hope to find a better future. Hundrends have drowned in the Aegean Sea, that has come to be characterized as an aquatic grave for immigrants. Giorgos Moutafis
