Lesvos: The shocking graveyard of the unknown refugees drowned in the Aegean

Small mounds of soil. A thin marble tablet. A brief inscription, mostly without a name. A number. And the date of the burial. Unadorned silence.

The graveyard of the Unknown. The graveyard of refugees drown in the Aegean Sea. Their bodies washed ashore or picked up from the waters by the rescue teams.
