Since 2000, more than 27,000 migrants and refugees have died attempting the perilous journey to Europe. With an unprecedented number of people breaking through its heavily barricaded borders in 2014, the EU continues to fortify its frontiers.

VICE News presents Europe or Die, a new four-part series that documents the efforts of those risking their lives to reach Europe, and the forces tasked to keep them out.

In part two of our second episode, VICE News correspondent Milène Larsson continues her visit to the border between Greece and Turkey to find out what happens to the many migrants who perish while attempting to cross Greece's dangerous Evros river.
