SPECIAL EXHIBITION

SPECIAL EXHIBITION FROM 19 APRIL 2013 TO 20 OCTOBER 2014

REFUGE - PROTECTION - HUMANITY

ABOUT THE WORK OF THE UNHCR

Worldwide there are some 43 million people in search of refuge. They are fleeing from persecution, war and violence. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) works to ensure protection for refugees and ensures that the human rights of refugees are upheld worldwide.

The first person that refugees arriving in Switzerland encounter is often a border guard. The exhibition portrays what it is like to be a refugee, what the UNHCR does for people in crisis zones and how Switzerland, traditionally a haven for refugees, fulfils its humanitarian role.
