Telling the Real Story is about the extraordinary journeys made by Eritrean and Somali refugees and migrants to Europe.
Tesfagiorgis’ journey to Europe started in Eritrea
Tesfagiorgis’ journey to Europe started in Eritrea. From there he traveled to Ethiopia, then Sudan. In the Sudanese capital of Khartoum he was lured by smugglers who promised him a smooth journey to the Mediterranean.
Once their trip began the situation quickly worsened. The smugglers fought among themselves at the expense of Tesfagirigis and the others on the trip. Sometimes they were forced off the truck and left in the middle of the desert with no explanation.
