Time Out says

It’s not easy to see past the anxieties of lockdown when you have to keep ‘normal’ life going within the same four walls. But if we’re going to put things in perspective: remember that for many people, ‘home’ does not equate to a place of safety. A recent report from the UN Refugee Agency showed that almost 80 million people were forcibly displaced by conflict and persecution by the end of last year.   To reflect on this shocking stat, the Imperial War Museum is putting on a series of online broadcasts exploring refugee experiences. The final Refugee Night (December 1) will close with a performance from Noisettes’s lead singer, Shingai Shoniwa. Tonight’s broadcast is with Nujeen Mustafa, an activist and refugee who travelled 3,500 miles from Syria to Germany in her wheelchair to escape conflict. Also featuring some guy called Jude Law.
