Unique film material from Berlin is on the UNESCO „memory of the world“ register.
The program „Memory of the World“ was established in 1992 by the UN cultural organization UNESCO. It intends to preserve the documentary heritage of humankind.
Since 2011 some documents of the Landesarchiv Berlin are part of this World Heritage.
On 25th May 2011 the Director-General of UNESCO Irina Bokova followed the recommendation of the International Advisory Committee and inscribed 15 historical documents on the register. These are relating to the construction and fall of the Berlin Wall, the Two-Plus-Four-Treaty of 1990 and include film and fotographs picturing the fate of people in divided Berlin.
You can find more information in the flyer 32 minutes “Memory of the World”.
