Chapter Five - Bodies

Migrants attempt to cross the borders, walking or hidden in trains and trucks, up to fifteen or twenty times in a year, taking risky, multiple chances, like in a game. More often than not, the Croatian and Hungarian Border Police takes them back to their departure point in Serbia, often after having physically and psychologically abused them. They push migrants to walk barefoot in the snow, force them in the frozen rivers, unleash dogs to rip them apart, beat them, break their legs, and even destroy their mobile phones, seizing their money and the few items they carry. Abuses are widely documented by the international NGOs operating in the field that every day provides medical support.
