What They Took With Them: celebrities read the poem for #WithRefugees campaign (VIDEO)In a try to highlight the position of refugees The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) launched a Facebook film to promote its #WithRefugees campaign.

In the video Oscar winner Cate Blanchett leads a cast including Keira Knightley, Juliet Stevenson, Peter Capaldi, Stanley Tucci, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kit Harington, Douglas Booth, Jesse Eisenberg and Neil Gaiman in performing the poem "What They Took With Them."

The poem, written by Jenifer Toksvig, is inspired by stories and first-hand testimonies from people fleeing their homes and items they took with them.

Another background for the poem was Brian Sokol’s photography project, "The Most Important Thing," made in collaboration with UNHCR. Many of those photos are featured in the film.

UNHCR said the petition is asking governments to ensure refugees have access to safe places to live, education and work.
