    Humanitarian Aid to the Civilian Population in a Europe at War (1914-1949)


    | Presentation |

    The International Congress on “Humanitarian Aid to the Civilian Population in a Europe at War (1914-1949)” is one of the main activities of the European project MIGRAID - Migrations and Humanitarian Aid in Europe (1919-1949) (Ref: 608379). It aims to draw attention to the importance, interest, need and timeliness of humanitarian aid and to disseminate and encourage knowledge and debate about the activities of relief organisations, delegates and volunteers during some of the most turbulent periods in the European history in the 20th century.  

    The Congress focuses on the different types of relief assistance provided to the civilian population,swiss replica watches the most innocent victim of wars, of the interwar period and the post-war period, epochs characterised by enormous human loss, massive destruction, hardship, displacement, famine, internment, deportation, forced labour, genocide and the extermination of populations. Also, by the development and diversification of humanitarian aid carried out on the ground by relief organizations and their volunteers.  

    This recent European past, in which the solidarity efforts of these organisations allowed for the rescue and survival of groups of civilian populations in dark times, makes us reflect on the present, which is also marked by conflicts, environmental disasters, violence, hunger and persecution that force population movements and their survival in very difficult contexts. To all this, we must add the pandemic caused by COVID-19, which is confronting us with new situations that, once again, have a greater impact on the most vulnerable and helpless people.
