To know your past, is to know yourself.

The work had been started to save a Christian church from falling into the hands of the Roman Catholics on one side or of the Presbyterians on another, or, far worse, from ceasing to resist the temptation to embrace Islam. These people had to pay double taxes because they were Christians, and could not get justice in the Courts because a case must never be given against a Mussulman (Moslem). The, Syrians (Assyrians) had suffered from massacres as cruel as the Armenians had undergone, but these things hardly ever found their way to the European papers.

United Nations: World Refugee Day

June 20

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees was established on December 14, 1950 by the United Nations General Assembly. The agency is mandated to lead and co-ordinate international action to protect refugees and resolve refugee problems worldwide. Its primary purpose is to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees. It strives to ensure that everyone can exercise the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another State, with the option to return home voluntarily, integrate locally or to resettle in a third country. It also has a mandate to help stateless people.

Since 1950, the agency has helped tens of millions of people restart their lives. Today, a staff of more than 9,300 people in 123 countries continues to help and protect millions of refugees, returnees, internally displaced and stateless people.
