We are delighted to announce a new international Conference which is taking place during the European Year of Cultural Heritage in 2018. Urban Jewish Heritage: Presence and Absence is being held from 3-7 September 2018 in the World Heritage City of Krakow, Poland. The Conference will bring together academics, planners, policy makers and community leaders to examine and discuss the pasts, presents and futures for cities with Jewish Heritage, particularly in Europe.
This year’s session of the Committee was held in the ICE Kraków Congress Centre from the 2nd to the 12th of July. Poland has become a member of the Committee for the second time in its history; however, for the first time, Poland had the honour to host a session of the World Heritage Committee, the leading executive body of the Convention of the UNESCO – the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization.
