Migrants have been buried near the Greek-Turkish border for several years

“For several years the bodies of unidentified migrants have been lying in a small cemetery in Sidiro, a small Greek village a few miles from the Turkish border. Some of them drowned while trying to cross the Evros River, others died of hypothermia or were victims of traffic accidents. There are reportedly 200 bodies buried there without names or dates”, –  the resource said.

The publication notes that even the local authorities do not know the exact number of bodies buried in the Sidiro cemetery. According to the village imam, long before his arrival, many people had already been buried there. The cemetery itself is located on a hilltop, visible from the small village mosque, but access is difficult, with no sign pointing in which direction to go.

“To get there, you have to have a guide and follow an unmarked path. There is no signposting at the entrance to the cemetery. It feels like the place wants to remain invisible, that these unidentified dead should also remain invisible”, –  stressed Info Migrants
