Dealing with refugees has become a contested concept with the ongoing refugee crisis ballooning in Europe. With most countries treating refugees as a threat, and the refugees engaging in constant search of a land to belong to, it is an extremely sorry state of affairs the world has arrived at.

Looking back, it might come across as a surprise that many famous personalities were/are refugees themselves, or children of refugee parents. It is time to take a look at the people we would have denied to the world had no country accepted them.

Still think refugees are a burden? Think again!
