Description : The Rath Museum was chosen as the venue for the exhibition because of its historical significance for the ICRC. Indeed, the museum "hosted" the new International Prisoners-of-War Agency between 1914-1919, and this exhibition thus provided a great opportunity for the ICRC to come back to the Musée Rath 100 years later.

The “Humanizing War?” exhibition takes a look at the evolution of the ICRC as well as the evolution of the challenges it faces. The exhibition is part of the “150 years of humanitarian action” project. At the heart of this exhibition are the human interactions that take place between the belligerents, the victims and the ICRC employees.
