Each year millions of people are displaced within the borders of their own countries by conflict, disasters, violence and climate stresses.

Fleeting their homes with little more than what they can carry, over weeks, months, or years of international displacement, these items become the physical representation of a world that has since disappeared and for many a promise of return. A key, a shirt, a photo, now serve both as a symbol of struggle and a beacon of hope. Holding On showcases the cherished possessions of internally displaced people and their stories from across the globe.
