‘Imagine the playground becoming a battlefield…’

By Anders Myrset, BA Creative Writing & Journalism

‘Go back in time to your earliest memories. Think about your family, friends, neighbourhood, even your favourite playground. Now, imagine the playground becoming a battlefield. Imagine that facing war, you are forced to leave your home, your friends, your family, and start anew…’. This is what Anders Myrset is asking you to do in his magazine which deals with the refugee crisis in Europe.  

In the light of the developments in the United States, raising awareness about refugees and their stories is as important as ever. Émigré, among other things, brings you the story of a refugee who made his way to Norway from Bosnia in the early 90s during the conflict in the Balkans and discusses how important media literacy is in the era of fake news.
