Memory of the World Programme
Documentary heritage reflects the diversity of languages, peoples and cultures. It is
the mirror of the world and its memory. But this memory is fragile. Every day,
irreplaceable parts of this memory disappear for ever.
UNESCO has launched the Memory of the World Programme to guard against
collective amnesia calling upon the preservation of the valuable archive holdings and
library collections all over the world ensuring their wide dissemination.
