Thank you for this!. I've been trying to trace a quotation on a tea towel once belonging to my Aunts. It appears they purchased it in 1978, issued by the Red Cross in celebration of the 150th anniversary of Dunant's birth. I am sad to find that the 100th anniversry of his death has just passed, and no-one else appears to be remembering him.

Thank you for your comment. I'd been planning to write about Dunant for some time and finally managed to get around to it.

Warren Smith

Thank you for your excellent article on the Battle of Solferino. I am assisting my daughter on her sixth grade project concerning the Geneva Convention. Her introduction is the accomplishments of Henri Dunant, and his contributions following his experiences at Solferino. Again, thank you, Warren Smith.

Romeo  Vitelli

I'm glad to help.


There was a television drama Henry Dunant released in 2006: Du rouge sur la croix (English title: "Henry Dunant: Red on the Cross"), which tells a story of signing Geneva Conventions and founding Red Cross. May wanna see it;)

Romeo  Vitelli

Thanks, I'll look for it.
