Pages – 150 years of the International Review of the Red Cross
Dating back to 1869, the International Review of the Red Cross is the oldest publication devoted to international humanitarian law, policy and action. The exhibition will highlight the role of the review in disseminating progress in international law related to armed conflict, and innovation in humanitarian action over the past 150 years.
This exhibition invites you to delve into the more than 110,000 pages that form the rich history of the journal with two questions in mind—can a publication change the course of history? Is the explosion of words you see here more powerful than the explosion of bombs in the wars humankind continues to wage?

Free entrance.
