"The U.N. refugee chief has called on countries to end the plight of some 12 million stateless people caught in what he described as 'limbo,' denied basic human rights because no country will grant them citizenship. Antonio Guterres, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, said governments had neglected a problem that was prominent after World War II due to the example of famous stateless people such as physicist Albert Einstein and Holocaust survivor Eli Wiesel."
