Exhibition on urban warfare and its impact on the civilian population

About the conference

War in Cities, An ICRC exhibition


This exhibition drew on video and audio recordings from the ICRC's archives dating as far back as 1922 to show the staggering toll that wars have taken on cities and the people living in them. But it also told of people's resilience and what the ICRC has done to help. The objects on display were collected in 2017 by ICRC staff members in two particularly hard-hit cities in Iraq: Ramadi, in Anbar Province, and Baiji, in Salah al-Din Province.

The exhibition was held from 24 September 2017 to 3 August 2018 in the Humanitarium at the ICRC's headquarters in Geneva.
