Kugler, O. (2018). Escaping Wars and Waves: Encounters with Syrian Refugees.

This graphic novel is a “compelling series of evocative drawings [that] documents the experiences of Syrian refugees he met in Iraqi Kurdistan, Greece, France, Germany, Switzerland and England, mostly on assignment for Médecins Sans Frontières.  Based on many interviews, and hundreds of reference photos, these drawings by Olivier Kugler beautifully observed drawings of his interviewees bring to life their location – a room, a camp, on the road. His reporting of their stories is peppered with snatches of conversation and images of the objects that have become such a significant part of their lives” (paras. 1-2).
