Where the Children Sleep

To commemorate World Refugee Day, The New York Public Library is hosting Where the Children Sleep, a presentation of photographs by Magnus Wennman, produced by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). "More than two million children have been forced from their homes by the war in Syria." In Wennmanon's photographs, "refugee children in neighbouring countries or making journeys through Europe show us where they sleep while they await an uncertain future. "

"Swedish photographer Magnus Wennman, winner of two World Press Photo Awards, has partnered with UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, to raise awareness about refugee children.​ UNHCR, in close collaboration with Fotografiska - The Swedish Museum of Photography, has brought his award-winning exhibit to the United States for the first time." To learn more, visit the UNHCR.

The exhibition will be located on the first floor of the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building.
