The story of an idea is an exciting publication that brings to life the story of the birth of the Red Cross/Red Crescent Movement and its history. This comic strip was created by the renowned artist Jean Giraud, alias Moebius.

Ideal for a general audience, the illustrations present in simple terms the meaning of the Geneva Conventions, the universal humanitarian principles underlying the Movement's efforts and the activities of the different components of the Movement as they work together to help those in need. 

This publication was produced jointly by the ICRC and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.
