UN refugee agency - UNHCR and the Liberation War Museum of Bangladesh will host an exhibition titled “We are Rohingya” which will be inaugurated on Monday.
The exhibition will be opened at 11:00 am in the temporary exhibition hall of the Liberation War Museum in Dhaka.
On the occasion of World Refugee Day, this photographic exhibition presents the work of 10 Rohingyas who photographed people living in the refugee camps of Cox’s Bazar.
Curated by David Palazon and Amena Khatun from the Liberation War Museum, the display includes 50 photographs that capture the culture, identity, hopes and dreams of people who escaped from violence and persecution in Myanmar and found refuge in Bangladesh.
The exhibition also includes 11 photographs from the Liberation War Museum archives that capture the lives and stories of Bangladeshi nationals, who in 1971 were forced to flee and lived as refugees, during the Liberation War.
This exhibition shows how the lived memory of millions of Bangladeshi uprooted during the Liberation War has inspired the generosity and protection the country is now extending to the persecuted Rohingya from neighbouring Myanmar, said the UNHCR.
