Long Journey photography exhibition launches in the West Bank
23 January 2015
The Long Journey photography exhibition has been launched at the Al-Bireh Cultural Centre in the city of al-Bireh in the West Bank. The exhibition showcases iconic photos and films depicting the life of Palestine refugees since 1948, selected from the digitized UNRWA Archive.
UNRWA Commissioner-General Pierre Krähenbühl inaugurated the exhibition in Al-Bireh. “This important photographic and audio-visual archive helps people engage with the history of Palestine refugees and learn about their lives,” Mr. Krähenbühl said. “We are committed to preserving the archive for future generations to ensure this essential part of Palestine heritage will not be lost.”
The exhibition will be open daily until 17 February 2015.
