150 years ago, the ICRC began its action to restore family links for people separated by conflict. Since 1870, the activities of the various information agencies created by the ICRC have continually developed and diversified themselves to meet the needs of victims.
We invite you to discover the history of these activities through the ICRC’s archives.
