This display room contains 1000000 Finnish passports. These represent the harsh migration rules only allowing a small fraction of applicants through. These passports represent the people who should of been allowed through the border. The passports are real and therefore need to be protected by bullet proof glass and will be burned when the exhibition finishes.
