內容簡介


最沉痛的現代悲歌,歐洲難民的苦難與人道危機

當鎮暴警察關閉國界,800位難民紛紛逃離戰亂的恐怖,直到2015年土耳其外海一搜難民船翻覆,海灘一位3歲小男孩屍體的照片被媒體大肆報導,歐盟及世界各國才真正開始正視敘利亞的難民問題,又是什麼原因造就成千上萬的人民為了生存鋌而走險逃向地中海各國?作者Charlotte McDonald-Gibson花費多年的時間研究歐洲難民危機,在本書以沉痛及寫實的內容,描述難民的困境、壓力、選擇及希望。書中的主角來自敘利亞的律師Nart,為了抵抗阿薩德政權的迫害而被迫逃離家鄉;新婚且懷孕的Sina為了逃離獨裁國家厄利垂亞已穿越3個國家,至今仍在逃亡。有4個孩子的Hanan看著家園大馬士革的崩壞,為了生存只好將自己的命運交給人口販子。這些沉痛而真實的人生際遇當將帶領讀者重新審思搖搖欲墜的人權。 

Riot police are shutting down borders, 800 lives are lost in a single shipwreck, a boy's body washes up on a beach: this is the European Union in summer 2015. But how did a bloc founded upon the values of human rights and dignity for all reach this point? And what was driving millions of desperate people to risk their lives on the Mediterranean? Charlotte McDonald-Gibson has spent years reporting on every aspect of Europe's refugee crisis, and Cast Away offers a vivid glimpse of the personal dilemmas, pressures, choices and hopes that lie beneath the headlines. We meet Majid, a Nigerian boy who exchanges the violence of his homeland for Libya, only to be driven onto a rickety boat during Colonel Gaddafi's crackdown on migrants. Nart is an idealistic young lawyer who risks imprisonment and torture in Syria until it is no longer safe for him to stay. Sina has to leave her new husband behind and take their unborn son across three continents to try and escape the Eritrean dictatorship. Mohammed is a teenager who dreams of becoming the world's best electrician until he is called to serve as a foot-soldier in the Syrian army. And Hanan watches in horror as the safe life she built for her four children in Damascus collapses, and she has to entrust their lives to people smugglers. While the politicians wrangle over responsibility, and the media talk in statistics, Cast Away brings to life the human consequences of the most urgent humanitarian issue of our time.
