In April 2016, an abandoned hotel in Athens, Greece, was transformed into housing for four hundred refugees from Syrian, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan and elsewhere. The residents themselves help run the hotel – including cooking communal meals, organizing childcare and running language classes – creating a new model of living as the refugees start to rebuild their lives in Europe.
