In the Berlin Pegamon Museum, the "Aleppo Room" has always been regarded as one of the treasures of the town hall. "Aleppo Room" from the 17th -century Syrian Aleppo. On the wooden wall plate surrounding the four walls, the Islamic flower pattern carefully hand -painted by the craftsman and the Christian Bible story vividly interpret the ethnic groups with different religious beliefs. Harmony and coexistence. Not long ago, just next to the "Aleppo Room" exhibition hall, a exhibition named "Syrian Heritage Archives" was held. The ancient city of Aleppo Castle, Lumaia Mosque, Palmila … The World Cultural Heritage that was destroyed in the Syrian civil war was presented in front of the audience in the form of archives and video pictures.
This constitutes a strange and bitter picture: on the one hand, the exquisite and gorgeous "Aleppo room", and on the other hand, it is the street view of the rubble. Reality is cruel and ruthless.
Archaeologist Lami Alavadi from Syria originally studied painted wooden boards similar to "Aleppo Room" in his hometown.
After the Syrian crisis broke out, he escaped his home with 7,000 information in 2012.
In Germany, the cultural relics information brought out by others together form the "Syrian Heritage Archives Project", which is the largest inheritance database outside Syria.
The war in Syria led to the humanitarian crisis and also caused civilization. The six World Heritage was included in the endangered World Heritage List, and a large number of cultural relics were stolen and sold, which also prompted the international community to continue to call and launch a protection action. Nowadays, many Aleppo’s painted wooden boards are either destroyed by war or stolen. Alavadi’s work has also changed from cultural relics to a list, with a view to their recovery when they re -appear in the market. In addition to Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Poland, Hungary and other countries have also participated in the protection and reconstruction of cultural relics in Syria. But sighing is that these efforts are still limited to private and folks.
This is objective and even exacerbated to the resale of cultural relics. It originated from Syria’s cultural relics and has appeared in the European and American trading market many times in recent years. What’s more sad is that in order to avoid supervision, man -covered or even destroy the source of theft of cultural relics, which not only causes the loss of cultural relics its own value, but also makes it more difficult to recover at the legal level. Such cultural relics protection dilemma is almost a by -product that war will inevitably bring.
Iraq is still recovering the cultural relics that were looted during the two wars in 1990 and 2003.
Even the Pegamon Museum, which has launched the Syrian cultural relics protection project today, was completely destroyed during World War II. Most of today’s buildings were rebuilt in the 1990s. In a museum destroyed and rebuilt by the war, it shows the human civilization heritage that is destroyed by the war. It is somewhat black humorous, but this is indeed what the planet is currently experiencing: the Civilization crystals for thousands of years have been destroyed by advanced weapons, and then Restore through digital technology and 3D printing. Cultural relics can still be recovered or recovered, but the youth and death that is destroyed during the war, and the advanced technology may be powerless.
Standing in front of the exquisite "Aleppo Room", people can’t help but sigh: 400 years ago, people can tolerate different religions and civilizations. Now, how can people not have enough wisdom to find peaceful ways to get along with each other? Essence
