IN PICTURES: UNRWA’s People Behind the Numbers exhibition

UNRWA exhibition on Palestinian refugees, at the “Danish House in Palestine” in Ramallah.

“Since its foundation, UNRWA has gathered numerous photos and films covering most aspects of the lives and history of Palestine refugees.

65 years after UNRWA’s foundation, there is a risk that the history of the Palestine refugees will only be seen as numbers and statistics. But it is important to remember that it is also a story of individuals and generations creating a life for themselves with all it entails. Life Between the Numbers is a testament to the everyday life of Palestine refugees from the early sixties up until the nineties.”

Firstly, thanks for reading this article! We hope you found it interesting.

The Turban Times is a completely independent magazine, run by a team of bloggers and journalists who all believe strongly in the importance of the stories that we publish.

We refuse to put up paywalls, as we want our journalism to remain free and open for all to explore. Our work, however, requires financial support.

If all our readers chipped in occasionally, with what they can afford, we would be able to continue telling important stories from the Middle East and North Africa region – and you would ultimately keep us financially and editorially independent.
