Greece, a country of immigrants who have left the country for many decades in the hope of ameliorating their lives, is now experiencing for the first time in the country’s history the social reality of a host country for immigrants coming from poorer nations from Asia, Africa and the Arab world.

In Patsideros, a small village named after the word “patsos” meaning peace we find the only Greek school with one single Greek student All the others are Albanian.\
In this small school in Northern Crete, life is made to feel better for people that were forced to leave their country and especially young ones who followed their parents choice
Immigration has recently become a major issue in Greece, a country which only few years ago use to migrate in almost every continent.
Now we need to learn to welcome immigrants here.
