  • Pleas read this comment and act, for the monuments in Syria, especially in Damascus, it’s irreplaceable for humanity as it is the oldest city in the world, and  does not have a past does not have a present nor a future.. “not to know what happened before you were born is to remain forever a child” CICERO 64 BC..

Dear Nancy,

Our historic cities had been always subject to destruction, reconstruction and reinventing themselves throughout history. The Ancient City of Damascus has many historical layers spans from Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine and Islamic. It has been on the WH in Danger List since 2013 following the armed conflict, among the other WHS in Syria, and now requires a coordinated work between various stakeholders such as the State Party, civil society and international heritage community. Efforts are taking place to remove the World Heritage Sites from the in-Danger List. These efforts are creating new knowledge and experiences to the field and we are all responsible to contribute.
