Memory of the World filled with Color
Ms. Beatrice Kaldun joined as special guest the launching event at the Liberation War Museum, on 7 March 2022 of the illustrated book “Memory of the World filled with Color” which was published by the UNESCO International Centre for Documentary Heritage. The launch of the publication timely coincided with the celebration of the 7th March speech of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman which is included in the UNESCO Memory of the World Register since 2017, as well as the 30th anniversary of the Memory of the World Programme. UNESCO’s vision of the Memory of the World Programme is that documentary heritage belongs to all, that it should be preserved and protected for all, and that it should be accessible to all.
The illustrated publication links nine MOW inscriptions with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The 7th March speech is among the 9 and is featured under SDG goal 10: reduced inequalities, highlighting the struggles for democracy, non-violence movements and right to self-determination, embracement and cohesion as well as the emergence of Bangladesh.
