What They Took With Them by Jenifer Toksvig

Jenifer Toksvig wrote What They Took With Them in 2015, inspired by stories and first-hand testimonies from refugees. Brian Sokol’s photography project, The Most Important Thing’, made in collaboration with UNHCR was one of the research sources Jenifer used for her writing.

In 2016 UNHCR Goodwill Ambassadors and supporters including Cate Blanchett, Neil Gaiman, Douglas Booth, Stanley Tucci, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Juliet Stevenson, Keira Knightley, Peter Capaldi and Jesse Eisenberg were filmed performing the poem.
