There are some 24.5 million internally displaced persons worldwide. Now, thanks to the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre in Geneva, a small number of them have been given a voice, thanks to the IDP Voices project. Their first publication is Book of Life Stories: Let It Be Known, chronicling the experience of 19 internally displaced Columbians. Each individual story is also posted to the IDP Voices site, presented in both English and Spanish, as both audio and text—and all accompanied by maps showing the paths of each narrator's displacement. It's a bold and beautiful project. You might start with the narratives of Blanca, a 64 year-old former government official, or Juan, a 20 year-old peasant.
