The ICRC takes part in two exhibitions
With the aim of renewing and completing its travelling exhibition, the Division for Documentation and Dissemination has prepared a set of eighteen panels for displays to be presented first in Zurich and later in Montreal. In the former city, the Swiss National Museum is putting on an exhibition on the theme “The Good Offices of Switzerland,” relating to activities of various kinds designed to limit international conflicts, and in this connection asked the ICRC to provide material illustrating its activities for the Humanitarian Action section. The panels deal with the following: the history of the Red Cross; the role of the ICRC; the Geneva Conventions; and the Central Tracing Agency. In addition, two showcases display documents relating to the Conventions and the Agency.
