“DISPLACED” is a project by the Swiss Federal Commission on Migration (FCM), the Swiss State Secretariat for Migration (SEM), the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).

Location: Bernisches Historisches Museum

The exhibition presents visitors with stories of people who are forced to flee from violence, war and persecution. They discover their misfortunes and can put themselves in the shoes of those affected. The m oving images, by film director Mano Khalil, of exhausting and hazardous journeys, often leading into the unknown, take visitors on a tour of the exhibition. They experience how it feels to arrive at a place where nobody is waiting for you. And they see who receives protection in Switzerland and other countries.

Around the world, more than 90 percent of refugees are reliant on support. The exhibition provides an insight into Switzerland’s involvement and international aid. It also reveals how decisions in the Swiss asylum procedure affect the future of those seeking protection.
