Carola Rackete, the German captain of the Sea-Watch 3 ship entered into the harbor of Lampedusa, Italy, on June 29, to save the lives of 52 migrants she rescued from the sea off the Libyan coast. "Carola Rackete saved our lives. Without her, we would all be dead," says Fréderic Samassi, a 24-year-old migrant from Ivory Coast.
