Statement UNESCO on Exhibition ‘Relationship Jewish People - Holy Land’

 

This is an official press release of the UNESCO Secretariat in Paris:

Following numerous requests for information regarding the Exhibition, ‘People, Book, Land – The 3,500 Year Relationship of the Jewish People to the Holy Land’ UNESCO wishes to reaffirm that the exhibition has not been cancelled but postponed.
 
UNESCO is in discussions with the Simon Wiesenthal Center to finalize the last points and inaugurate the exhibition in the month of June.
 
UNESCO is actively engaged in work to promote respect and tolerance, to deepen mutual understanding and to advance intercultural dialogue. We believe that knowledge of history and education are powerful ways to combat discrimination and to build peace. UNESCO programmes to promote intercultural dialogue, to teach the history of the Holocaust, to fight against all forms of racism, anti-Semitism and negationism are pillars of this work.
 
This spirit guides the commemoration that UNESCO leads every year on 27 January on the International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust, including this year, with a wide range of partners.
