Dozens of journalists are killed around the world every year. In Iraq alone, more than 200 have died since the start of the US occupation. These figures show the risks journalists face while doing their job.
Honouring their courage and outspokenness is not an idea devised by journalists for other journalists. It is a way of reminding people that defending freedom should matter to us all. For there can be no freedom without media freedom, and no democracy without news that respects people and is based on facts.
This online memorial lists all journalists and media assistants killed in the course of their work since the end of the Second World War – a database unique in size and scope.
A place of remembrance, lest we forget. A tribute to freedom.
