Is escape inescapable? Or can one leave the identity of refugee behind?

A billion people all over the world are fleeing war, hunger, or violence. The media most often show-cases the terrifying, dangerous flight of individuals – but Ilija Trojanow has spoken to many refugees about what comes after the escape, and writes movingly of how their flight still shapes them, and how his own experiences are still part of him. In so doing, he manages to paint the existential portrait of a human fate that defines our time like almost no other.
