While Europe entered an ongoing identity crisis, many Europeans travelled to Lesvos to redefine European identity not by words but by their philanthropic actions. Together, these last volunteers of Lesbos tell the story of a humane response to the greatest quest that Europe has yet to face in the 21st century.
With the ratification of the EU–Turkey Agreement, the refugee crisis reaches a turning point. It also marks the end of the humanitarian commitment of the volunteers in Lesvos, who no longer have access to the official camps.
