Serving the cause of peace in a violent world is a dangerous occupation. Since the founding of the United Nations, hundreds of brave men and women have lost their lives in its service.
In the last decade, the United Nations itself has become a target. This has included attacks against the United Nations where staff members have either been killed or injured in Mazar-i-Sharif, Afghanistan on 1 April 2011; Abuja, Nigeria on 26 August 2011; Algiers, Algeria on 11 December 2007; and Baghdad, Iraq on 19 August 2003.
Remember the Fallen pays tribute to those who are often forgotten – those who have died in the service of the United Nations.
