Palestinian Refugees and their plight comes alive in the dramatic traveling audiovisual exhibition, Long Journey. The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) with the support of the European Union, which is UNRWA’s largest donor/partner, is now showcasing this exhibit through January 10 at BOZAR, a distinguished Brussels cultural center. EU support is funneled to Palestinian protection and human development through social services programs, education, health and relief. (See: “The UNRWA ‘Long Journey’Exhibition in Brussels Showcases EU Support to Palestinian Refugees.”)
The historical chronicle of photographs and films spans the Palestine refugee experience from the 1948 Arab-Israeli War to today’s Syrian conflict and crisis for 560,000 refugees in Syria including 18,000 refugees in the Yarmouk Camp in Damascus. The archive has been inscribed on the UNESCO Memory of the World Register and is testimony and tribute to the challenges faced and heroically challenged and endured by Palestinian refugees.
