The Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland and the National Institute of Cultural Heritage together with the World Heritage Centre UNESCO, the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) and the International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property (ICCROM) are pleased to invite you to take part in a webinar on 21 October 2020, organized to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the reconstruction of the Historic Centre of Warsaw, epitomizing the revival of the identity of the Polish society, and to mark the 40th anniversary of the entry of the Historic Centre of Warsaw on the UNESCO World Heritage List (1980), as a symbol-city brought back to life at the will of the nation.
During discussions of experts in the protection of the world heritage, we will talk about international experience in the revival of historical cities destroyed during 20th-century wars and about contemporary challenges facing the endangered heritage. The webinar "The Invincible City. Cultural heritage in post-war recovery of society" is also intended to be an expression of solidarity of the Polish nation with the cities whose heritage has been destroyed as a result of armed conflicts and natural disasters.
