Why does this study serve
Protecting cultural heritage during an armed conflict is difficult and sometimes life-threatening.
However, communities trapped in war zones boldly
seek to save their cultural heritage, as it provides a sense of continuity between unrest and insecurity. This study is the result of knowledge
gained from field experience gathered through the ICCROM Initiative Capacity Building for Cultural Heritage First Aid in Times of Crisis. This study helps step by step
to evacuate collections in extreme conditions. It aims to help those communities and institutions that seek to prevent the destruction and looting of cultural property
during emergency situations. It can also be used to train staff and improve emergency preparedness in cultural venues. Given that there are no two similar emergencies,
below this study will outline a study and innovative proposals that can be personalized to meet needs in a specific emergency context.
