Yemeni Heritage Week – Museums Untied for Yemen 

 24-30 april 2016  

 

 

Peter the Great Museum of Anthropology and Ethnography (Kunstkamera) supports Yemeni Heritage Week – Museums United for Yemen organized by UNESCO in the framework of #Unite4Heritage global movement powered by UNESCO that aims to celebrate and safeguard cultural heritage and diversity around the world. Launched in response to the unprecedented recent attacks on heritage, the campaign calls on everyone to stand up against extremism and radicalization by celebrating the places, objects and cultural traditions that make the world such a rich and vibrant place.

The recent conflict in Yemen that started in March 2015 has caused serious security and humanitarian crisis in the country. At the same time, the conflict severely affected Yemen’s unique cultural heritage mostly as collateral damage caused by military operations, aerial bombardment in particular. The Old Cities of Sana’ and Saa’da, the Citadel of Taez, the archaeological site of the pre-Islamic walled city of Baraqish, the archaeological site of Sirwah (near Marib) from the 1st millennium B.C., and the Great Dam of Marib, a wonder of technical engineering, were all affected. Dhamar Museum, which used to host 12,500 artefacts, was completely destroyed.

In this regard, UNESCO proposes to organise 24th-30th April, 2016 Yemeni Heritage Week – Museums United for Yemen together with major museums around the world that host Yemen’s important cultural artefacts under #Unite4Heritage Campaign.
