This is a pictorial exhibition of items, either listed on a Memory of the World Register or chosen from projects, which typify the vast range of carriers that make up the documentary heritage of humanity.

UNESCO’s Memory of the World Programme seeks to protect precious documentary heritage that was recorded from the beginning of human existence up to the present. It includes events and discoveries that have transformed the world. It tells of their triumphs and finer moments as well as the horrors they have experienced. Documentary heritage is recorded on audiotapes, woven into tapestries or handwritten in a diary. It serves to transmit the histories of slaves or social group that no longer exist to provide a better understanding of the world’s cultural diversity.
