A Memory of Humanity: From Solferino to Guantanamo - 145 Years of Red Cross Photography

The Adams Gallery at Suffolk University presents A Memory of Humanity: From Solferino to Guantanamo - 145 Years of Red Cross Photography, a traveling exhibit from the International Red Cross, illustrating how compassion and humanitarian aid can mitigate the horrors of armed conflict. More than 80 photographs from the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum in Geneva offer a view of International Humanitarian Law from its beginnings in 1859 to the present. The exhibit will visit five U.S. cities before continuing its world-wide tour in Russia. 

Suffolk University’s Adams Gallery presents exhibits on themes related to history. It is located on the Freedom Trail, in the historic heart of Boston. Admission is free. 

The American Red Cross of Massachusetts Bay is one of the largest chapters in a national network of just over 750 Red Cross units. With thousands of local volunteers supporting its mission, people from across 127 cities and towns in eastern Massachusetts are able to receive training or service from their local Red Cross chapter through Disaster Relief, Health and Safety Training programs, Food and Nutrition, and International Services. Deborah C. Jackson is the CEO of the American Red Cross of Massachusetts Bay.
