Dunkirk Refugee Camp

Jules Calis and David Oranje

In the northern French town of Grande-Synthe, a suburb of Dunkirk and a two-hour drive from the Dutch border, it is harrowing to see how the European asylum policy is failing. Plagued by infectious diseases, violent people smugglers and unwilling authorities, the 3000 inhabitants of the refugee camp there are desperately trying to survive the winter. “Are we not human?”

Dutch graphic journalist Jules Calis and journalist David Oranje went there and made this probing reportage.
