Human Stories

Human stories give us a peek into the background and life experiences of refugees and asylum seekers in Israel; Where did they come from? Why were they forced to flee their country? Why did they come to Israel? Why can’t they return home? What difficulties do they face in their country of refuge? The answers to these and other questions enable a deeper understanding of and familiarity with the people behind the daily media headlines in Israel. A selection of those human stories is presented on this page.

Filmed testimonies and other human stories can also be found on the “Takiru” campaign page.

UNHCR documents human stories from around the world and publishes them on their global website. For more materials in English, you can visit the following pages: Human stories and Special Features.
