Henry Dunant Museum reviews
SWITZERLAND, Heiden-Henry Dunant Red Cross Museum Henry Dunant was the symbol of the Red Cross of the Kamylian monks, and he named his institution the Red Cross (created to assist the wounded soldiers). In choosing a symbol, his nationality could be played, i.e. the cross on the Swiss flag. In addition to the above: -Introduced identification badges, which could be used to identify the number of those who were not. -organised a conference on the problems of prisoners of war and the abolition of trade in slaves. In 1887 he moved to Heidenbe. In 1895, a journalist made an article in which he travelled across Europe in a few days. They began to admit that they had been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1901. The museum, named after him, is very small:) Located on the ground floor of the building. Potom can be visited for Swiss franc or euro (card is not accepted). The lady working there is very kind. Do not go to the upper part of the floor, because there are physicians who work in the nearby hospital.
