His journey to Germany took him 17 days and cost him $3,500, he arrived in Berlin in July 2015. The most frightening moment of his trip was the crossing of the Aegean to Lesbos. In Hungary, Ehsan’s friends were arrested and he was forced to complete his journey alone. His parents, his two brothers and his two sisters live in Turkey now.
