Mohammed al-Haj, foreground, and his friend Dr. Mohanad Abdul-Qader, also from Syria, sleep on the deck of a ferry in this photo taken on Wednesday, Sept. 9, 2015, as they travel from Lesbos to Athens. Ferry officials barred the refugees from entering the lounges on the lower decks, where tourists and Greeks stretched out on comfortable seats. Instead, the migrants were told to cram on the eighth level, but when the smell there became too much, Mohammed and others slept on the open-air deck, exposed to the cold night breeze and the rain. “Of course, this is a kind of racism. They look at us Syrians as animals,” Mohammed said. (AP Photo/Santi Palacios)
