Shrouded in white, the little girl lies on the ground in the paupers' section of Lesbos cemetery. Strangers attend her burial, and she will forever rest next to an unknown woman who died with her.

"Her mother may be alive in Turkey but we have not been able to find a family contact," says Effi Latsoudi, a member of a volunteer group helping migrants on Lesbos, the Greek island that is a gateway into Europe for thousands of migrants and refugees.

All that is known of the little girl is that she was seven - according to the coroner - and that she died on September 20 trying to cross the Aegean Sea in search of a better future.
