There are always refugees. This woodcut was done in 1965c, during the Vietnam war that lasted from 1959-1975. It was inspired by news photographs of villagers leaving their homes. There have been many turbulant times everywhere since then, resulting in refugees.
Now, close to half a million 'refugees' (displaced civilians) are in camps, caught in the middle of a Pakistan desperately defending itself (and its nuclear capability) against a Taliban effort to dominate the region. The world relies on them to do so, short of participating.
