A Documentary Film on the World Day of Refugee


 On the occasion of the World Day of Refugee, which took place on the twentieth of June, the Refugees, Displaced Persons and Forced Migration Studies Center, in cooperation with Al-Hussein Bin Talal Library, organized a special event that included a screening of the documentary film of Mr. Tanimoto's Journey, which documents the journey of Mr. Tanimoto, the Japanese refugee, and his placement in the United States of America after World War II.
Prof. Al Kharouf, the Director of the Refugee, Displaced and Forced Migration Studies Centre, said that the Center is keen to invest in occasions related to issues of asylum, displacement and forced migration, which helps in reviewing the concerns, issues and problems of refugees at various levels through studies and research. For his part, the Director of the Al-Hussein Bin Talal Library, Dr. Omar Al-Ghoul, praised the joint cooperation between the Center and the various departments of the university. Besides, the film's director, Dr. Jesse A. Diszard, Professor of Visual Anthropology at California State University, Chico, thanked Yarmouk University and the Refugee Studies Center for screening the film that deals with the concept of identity and homeland as well as the experience of alienation inside the homeland. However, an extensive discussion took place among the audience at the end of the show.
