Report: “Global Refugee Archive Collecting the Stories of the World’s Displaced”

From KSL-TV (Salt Lake City):

The struggles of refugees around the world have captured headlines recently due to the plight of the Afghan people. A Global Refugee Archive launched today at Brigham Young University by a nonprofit plans to preserve those stories.

This is a digital archive to be housed at the Harold B. Lee Library Scholars Archive. The stories will be available to the public, academic researchers and humanitarians.

“They didn’t choose to leave their homes. They had to leave their homes,” said Robin Peterson, director of archives for Their Story is Our story.

A new digital collection of their stories as refugees will be gathered in the Global Refugee Archive at BYU. Stories, photos and video will be collected and managed by Their Story is Our Story, or TSOS.
