Heritage Heroes

The photography exhibition “Heritage Heroes” shows the stories of 12 individuals with a portrait photo and a short story each who have committed themselves in an exceptional way to the protection and conservation of world heritage sites – people who can tell us their personal story about their fight against the destruction of cultural sites or habitat. In cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Germany and the German UNESCO-Commission e.V.
