Greece Hopeless On The Border Photo Essay

FILE – In this Tuesday, March, 1 2016 file photo, a Syrian man plays with his one-year-old child as refugees and migrants wait to be allowed to cross the border to Macedonia in the northern Greek border station of Idomeni. The fields of Idomeni were never a proper border crossing between Greece and Macedonia. It’s where the freight trains cross, and earlier in the crisis refugees and migrants traveling clandestinely through the Balkans used it as they followed the tracks _ on foot _ north toward central Europe. Soon it became a major staging point in the biggest mass movement of people the continent has seen since vast displaced populations were being repatriated in the bloody aftermath of World War II.
