  • Rania Mustafa Ali, 20, filmed her journey from the ruins of Kobane in Syria to Austria, showing what many refugees face on their perilous journey to Europe. She ischeated by smugglers, teargassed and beaten at the Macedonian border, and risks drowning in the Mediterranean—traveling in a boat meant to hold 15 people but stuffed with over 50. Those with disabilities are carried across raging rivers and muddy fields in their wheelchairs.
