Refugees Endure: WWII Displaced Persons vs Today and the Lessons Learned

Refugees Endure: WWII Displaced Persons versus Today and the Lessons Learned

Mark Twain once said, “History doesn’t repeat itself, it rhymes.” With 65 million refugees in the world today, the topic of refugees is not a new one, but it is an evolving topic as recent world events have shown. The international conference, Refugees Endure: WWII Displaced Persons versus Today and the Lessons Learned, on November 16th and 17th at the Tulane Law School, and hosted by the Eason Weinmann Center for International and Comparative Law, will be a first of its kind, focusing on the lessons learned from the challenges of the 10 to 12 million refugees following WWII and their application to today’s over 65 million world refugees. Additionally, this conference will examine the contributions by refugees through their art, music, as well as, hearing the oral vignettes of their experiences. A wide range of speakers from various organizations are planning to attend; including Tulane University, Rice University, Texas A&M, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, International Rescue Committee, Facing History and Ourselves, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, Miles4Migrants and ExsulCoin.
