HASHTAG LESBOS. The refugee crisis was the biggest challenge the European Union has ever been faced in sixty years of European integration policy. Some described it as task of the century. More than 250,000 people have reached Greece in 2015, the vast majority of them Syrians or Afghans fleeing conflict. The moment the refugees arrive at the shore was absolutely dramatic: the arrivals cry, scream, collapse, but also laugh and sing, take selfies and call their relatives. It was an emotionally overwhelming situation. How many boats arrived depended on weather, patrolling coastguards, the political situation and the smugglers' time schedules. Sometimes more than thousand refugees arrived, another day only a few boats reached the shore.
