UN in your language

Live Windows Project: World Refugee Day, 20 June

<< Back to Live Windows Project

This year the UN refugee agency, UNHCR, marked World Refugee Day by rolling out a striking new campaign, "Dilemmas," which is a development of the award-winning "1" campaign launched last year. "Dilemmas" depicts some of the tough choices facing refugees, helping the public to empathize with, and understand, their dilemma.

Fabrica resident Gabriele Riva produced this Live Windows animation to commemorate the day and mark the beginning of UNHCR's new campaign. It was screened in Barcelona and Milan.

The photographs used in the video were taken from the United Nations photo archives.

"Every minute eight people leave everything behind to escape war, persecution or terror.

If conflict threatened your family, what would you do? Stay and risk your lives? Or try to flee, and risk kidnap, rape or torture?

For many refugees the choice is between the horrific or something worse."
