Recognizing Lost Lives

On Aug. 19, 2003, a brutal terrorist attack on the U.N. headquarters in Baghdad killed 22 people, including Brazilian U.N. diplomat Sergio Vieira de Mello. To honor these victims and others who also lost their lives in humanitarian service, this date was selected as the official World Humanitarian Day in December 2008.
