Pakistan: War Memories
Azimuths/ICRC 2000

Brigadier (ret.) Abdul Rafiq Khan Burki is secretary general of the Pakistan Red Crescent Society. In 1971, during the Indo-Pakistan war, he was arrested as a military medical officer and detained in an Indian prison. It was there that he encountered ICRC delegates for the first time. The concern shown by the delegates for the plight of the wounded and prisoners of war made such a strong impression on him that on his retirement from the military he accepted a position with the Pakistan Red Crescent Society. By focusing on its secretary general, this film also illustrates the activities of Pakistan's National Society.

Running time: 10 minutes. Available from the ICRC in French, English, and Spanish. VHS. Sfr. 20.
