AN award-winning photojournalist has put together a major new book about the Mediterranean migrant crisis.

Among the many articles in the 592-page tome, is an Olive Press story (right) about a young African footballer rescued from a dinghy in the Straits.

The book Europe and the Mediterranean in Times of Migration was the brainchild of photographer Thomas Dworzak and journalist and civil rights lawyer Alia Malek.

Many other reporters helped to compile the book, which covers the migrant crisis since 2015.

“They were struck by the urgent need for the kind of information this book provides,” Malek told the Olive Press.

“By featuring the voices of refugees as well as residents of Europe – many of them once displaced themselves – the book is also a place of dialogue.”

The non-profit book will be printed in four languages.
