  1. Help for Iraq

    In summer 2014 a Chaldean church archive from the 11th century was rescued from the war in Mosul and brought to a safe place within the country. It had been a dramatic rescue. As cars were not allowed into safe territories, people went by foot and saved their lives and parts of their/our history.

    In autumn 2015 the initiator of the rescue action was in Austria and asked for help for the valuable written heritage. Conservators without Frontiers sent a conservator to Iraq.

    It was a joint action with ICARUS

    At the moment we are preparing the second Iraq project. We ask for your support.
