The Tributaries, shot on assignment for Page 1 of The Wall Street Journal, follows the journey of new refugee arrivals during their first 30 days in Germany. Here, Genet from Eritrea and her roommate Merym from Somalia are housed in a former army barracks acting as a refugee camp in Meßstetten, Germany. Genet traveled alone, following her husband who fled from Eritrea weeks earlier. They have since been reunited in Germany.
