New Arrivals: They left Afghanistan a family of nine. They arrived in the UK a family of two by Ross Domoney

New Arrivals

The first episode of a series I filmed, directed and edited for the Guardian as part a project launched simultaneously with Der Spiegel, Le Monde and El País. The project looks at how refugees and asylum seekers are getting on in Europe and how the continents various governments are treating them.

'More than 1.2 million people sought asylum in Europe last year. How are they adapting to their new lives? What do they miss? What’s it like to swap Homs for Hamburg, Kabul for Croydon, or Mosul for the Mosel? Which European countries are best at helping refugees settle? In this series, the Guardian teams up with Der Spiegel, Le Monde and El País to get inside newly arrived communities in western Europe to assess whether promises are being kept, whether European society is changing the new arrivals – and vice versa.'
