Wars, always have consequences, both immediate and remote, and the consequences are often tragic. One tragic
circumstance often caused by war is the forceful, disorganized and uncontrollable mass movement of both civilians
and soldiers trying to escape the horrors of the wars or of an oppressive regime. At one time, populations fled
from one region or state to another. As wars have become international however, such movements began to spread
beyond their initial boundaries, sometimes to countries very far away.
