Firouz, 41, from Aleppo is one of many Syrians refugees making the perilous journey to Europe, leaving behind his family to help secure them refugee status hopefully in Germany. His option chose him to come to Izmir where he will cross the sea through Greece and continue by foot and transport onwards. After the boat accidents leave thousands of migrants dead he fears this could be his life too. He doesn't want to stay forever but at least till the war is over in Syria. He shows me a picture of his daughter excelling at school from last week before they had to flee.
