Swiss pass is free to visit. The northwest suburb of Geneva is an area where international organizations are concentrated. Along the way, the names of the stations are the International Telecommunication Union (UIT), the United Nations Office (UN) and the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Society (ICRC). The International Red Cross Museum (MIRC) is a small-scale exhibition hall with a similar style to the World Expo. It has few objects and focuses on conveying humanistic ideas. The entrance door is a group of blindfolded sculptures with their hands cut back. It can be imagined that, as figurines, they are in a dark despair both at present and in their hearts. The Red Cross and Red Crescent flag hanging above the sculpture implies that the responsibility of the Red Cross Movement is to protect human life from helplessness and fear. The inside exhibition board has Confucius "Analects of Confucius" in the famous motto "do not do to others what you don't want to do to others" and a paragraph signed "Xunzi" -- "close to the teacher selling expensive, the people are well-off and well-paid to raise it" (but the English introduction is about Sun Tzu) - - back to Baidu for a while, it is indeed an extract of "Art of War of Sun Tzu".
On the hill opposite the Palais des Nations, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) was established in memory of Henry Dunant, who was born in Geneva. The Museum mainly introduces the history and current activities of the International Red Cross Society. There are three exhibition halls - "maintaining human dignity, rebuilding family ties and mitigating natural risks. The three exhibition halls are designed by three well-known designers with different backgrounds. There are photographs, videos and objects in the museum, showing the work of the Red Cross, and seeing the tremendous suffering caused by wars and disasters in the world. It may only be a few words to see the pictures and the message of help left by the people in the war, but it will be touching, grateful for living in the era of peace and praying that there will be no war in the world. Museums have established priority partnerships with 12 countries to provide posters, photographs, films and objects that record their work. Seeing the information of Wenchuan earthquake provided by the Red Cross Society of China, it seems that it reappeared yesterday. There are also 12 contemporary witnesses in the pavilion who can listen to their testimony in front of the screen through the main line of "human to process". World peace is the wish of the Red Cross, and war is closely related to each of us. Here we can learn about the activities of the Red Cross in the world through photographs, videos and sculptures, and provide free Chinese voice guide. Tips - "1.
