CIRIL JAZBEC / REFUGEE STREAM INTO YOUR TOWN
I had never thought or imagined that I would be covering a story involving war refugees on my own doorstep. In 2015, Slovenia was suddenly faced with a massive influx of refugees. For the villagers of Rigonci on the Croatian border, it was a catastrophe. This is a story told from the perspective of Europeans whose lives were dramatically changed overnight. In just a couple of weeks, Rigonci, a village of 176 inhabitants, became a crossing point for thousands of migrants en route to Germany and Austria.
