To shed light on the harrowing journey refugees are forced to make on a daily basis, Amnesty International asked five people from the Netherlands and Belgium to go under hypnosis and live one of those dangerous journeys.

The five-and-a-half-minute film, ‘Through the eyes of a refugee’ follows the five people who were brought into a state of hypnosis so they could gain deeper insight into the journey of a Syrian refugee. Under the guidance of a professional hypnotherapist, the participants experienced the journey of 29-year-old Marwa, from Syria, as she made her way to safety to the Netherlands.

As the people are put under, the hypnotherapist describes in detail the chaos of war, the destruction of Marwa’s family, her freezing trip on a sinking boat, the deplorable conditions of the refugee camp, and finally, the help she received in applying to come safely to the Netherlands. The people in the film clearly believe that they are living the journey. When they come to, they are introduced to Marwa. All feel her plight and her struggle and give her hugs of assurance and empathy. The film is tagged with “Refugees are nowhere without your understanding.”
