Tolerance Square (UNESCO Headquarters) designed by Israeli artist Dani Karavan and dedicated to Yitzhak Rabin. The wall is made of white concrete. The preamble to UNESCO's Constitution is engraved in UNESCO's six official languages as well as in Hebrew. The first inscription is in Hebrew and in Arabic.

Co-organized by UNESCO and the Simon Wiesenthal Centre, the exhibition tells the history of the Jewish People in the Middle East, from biblical times to the present.
The exhibition is authored by Prof. Robert Wistrich of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and sponsored by the Permanent Delegations of Canada, Israel, Montenegro and the United States of America to UNESCO.

The Simon Wiesenthal Centre is an international Jewish human rights organization based in Los Angeles. Founded in 1977, the Centre draws the lessons of the Holocaust to the analysis of contemporary issues of intolerance. The Centre is an official UNESCO NGO partner and is accredited with several other international organizations including the United Nations, OSCE, Organization of American States (OAS), the Latin American Parliament (PARLATINO) and the Council of Europe.
