Exploring the Oxfam archive

Last week, Amy Christian wrote a blog post about some images we had found in the Oxfam archive.  They were pictures from the 1950s and 1960s, mainly of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon and Jordan. Those pictures are especially poignant at the moment, as the crisis in Syria continues to escalate. A different time and a different situation, but the same region - and Oxfam was there then and is there now, providing support to people whose lives have been thrown into turmoil. 

I want to share more of the images that can be found in our archive with you.  There are so many fascinating pictures and stories to be uncovered. I'll start posting more regularly with things from the archive, but in the meantime, here's a video to explain a bit more about the archive - and a bit more about my colleague Bekki, who is working to digitise all those images that have been taken and kept over the years.
