STORYLINE
The first-ever Solidarity Train has arrived at Paris’ Gare de Lyon Station. The moving exhibiton will stop in five French cities, creating dialogue and educating the public about refugees.

SOUNDBITE (French) Celine Schmitt Spokesperson, UNHCR:
“The idea of the train is to create encounters. To go from city to city, to highlight the role of cities in the integration of refugees. But more importantly, to create encounters between refugees and their hosts, the French citizens that welcome them.”

From 28 November to 17 December, the Solidarity Train will stop in 5 cities: Paris, Bordeaux, Clermont Ferrand, Lyon and Stratsbourg. Open to the public, the Solidarity Train has en exhibition space that explains the current refugee crisis and the role of the UNHCR in helping refugees in France and across the world.

SOUNDBITE (French) Leen Youssef, Syrian Refugee:
“Being a refugee is a legal status, it shouldn’t define you as a person. Before being a refugee, we were other things, and its important to recognize our humanity, were not only numbers.”

Visitors can view portraits, listen to testimonials and understand the causes and consequences of forced displacement around the world. Another car has a conference space for lectures, debates and film screenings. The Solidarity Train is also a space where the public can meet refugees, and explore how refugees can further inegrate into their new countries and strenghten their bonds with their new neighbors.

SOUNDBITE (French) Stephane Volant, SNCF Company Secretary:
“The train is an emblamatic mode of transport in France, in Europe and around the world. Its a beautiful tool to link human beings between to each other, and linking humans together is ultimately what solidarity is.”

The Solidarity Train will complete its journey in Geneva for the opening of the first Global Refugee Forum, a world meeting on refugees to follow up on the practical implementation of the Global Compact on Refugees, affirmed at the UN in New York in December 2018.
