Crossing the Sea: With Syrians on the Exodus to Europe (Hardback)

Despatched in 2 business days.


Award-winning journalist Wolfgang Bauer and photographer Stanislav Krupar were the first undercover reporters to document the journey of Syrian refugees from Egypt to Europe. Posing as English teachers in 2014, they were direct witnesses to the brutality of smuggler gangs, the processes of detainment and deportation, the dangers of sea-crossing on rickety boats, and the final furtive journey through Europe. Combining their own travels with other eyewitness accounts in the first book of reportage of its kind, Crossing the Sea brings to life both the systemic problems and the individual faces behind the crisis, and is a passionate appeal for more humanitarian refugee policies.

Wolfgang Bauer is a reporter for Die Zeit. His reportage has won him many prizes including the Prix Bayeux-Calvados for War Correspondents. He has worked in the Arab world for many years, including in war zones in Syria and Libya. His second Prix Bayeux-Calvados for War Correspondents was awarded for the Syrian refugee reportage in Die Zeit that formed the basis of this book. ------- Stanislav Krupar is a Prague-based documentary photographer. His work appears regularly in the New York Times, Time, Die Zeit, and other international media. Besides covering news and current affairs, Krupar is working on several long-term documentary projects in Russia and Siberia. Before being a full-time professional photographer, he also spent time as an illegal migrant worker at farms in England. ------- Sarah Pybus worked as an in-house translator in Germany and the UK before beginning her freelance career. In 2015 she was awarded first place in the Non-Fiction Translation Competition run by Geisteswissenschaften International/German Book Office New York. Crossing the Sea is her first book translation.

A moving collaboration between Die Zeit's Wolgang Bauer and photographer Stanislav Krupař, this is the book we should all be reading. Astonishing and heartbreaking,it is Bauer's plea for that which our current discourse appears to be lacking: compassion, kindness and, above all, mercy.
