Achim  Engelberg - On the Edge of Europe


A journey along Europe's outer boarders. The disintegration and awakening of a continent.

How has the continent of Europe changed in the past decades, from the point of view of its outermost regions?

Achim Engelberg has spent many years travelling along the borders of Europe, from Iceland to Sicily and from Spain to the Balkans, where the end of the Cold War brought new dangers with it. The 1990s were marked by the return of war and by economic shockwaves that gripped eastern Europe and turned western Europe increasingly inwards. Then the first refugees arrived on the continent, and death came to the Mediterranean. Contrary to what many believed, 1989 didn't spell the end of history: instead, it brought uncertainty and vulnerability to a proud and complacent continent.

Will Europe find the strength to emerge like a Phoenix from the ashes?
