Refugees: Between worlds in Israel, Turkey and Greece – Al Jazeera Selects
Three short documentaries capture the experiences of refugees in Europe and the Middle East. In The Boys of Nitzana”, Eritrean refugee Amar has been welcomed at a small school for undocumented migrants in Israel. But while the school welcomed Amar warmly, Israeli policy does not.
Syria: No Strings tells the story of a group of Syrian teachers who use a surprising tool to help children cope with the traumas of war: puppetry.
Greece’s Tower of Babel takes us inside the City Plaza Hotel in Athens, Greece, which has become a unique space for hundreds of refugees and migrants.

Why does a Saudi Arabia-led group of nations want Al Jazeera to close? It’s been more than a month since Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt cut diplomatic ties with Qatar and imposed sanctions on the country, accusing it of supporting “terrorism”, an allegation Doha has rejected as “baseless”. One of a list of 13 demands the countries made of Qatar was that it shutter the global media network.
Since then, Al Jazeera offices in Riyadh and Amman have been closed and its websites blocked in several of the countries. Qatari-owned Al Jazeera began in 1996 and was the first pan-Arab news channel in a region dominated by tightly controlled state media.
