Iranian Works in MOW


The Secretary of National Memory of the World Committee announced about registration of three exquisite works through the recent meeting of the National Memory of the World (MOW) Committee. The meeting was attended by the majority of members. While registering three exquisite works, we discussed about how to hold the second regional Asia-Pacific gathering of the World Memory Program which will be held in the following September through working with the UNESCO office in Tehran and relevant professors and experts.

He also added, “In this meeting three series including works of Houshang Moradi Kermani (contemporary novelist), collection of pamphlets of Qara-Khitai Quran (Turkan Khatoon’s 18 slices) of Shah Nematollah Vali’s threshold in Kerman and collection of geographical maps drawn by Master Sahab were approved by the evaluation committees and considered as qualified to be recorded in the list of Iranian National Memory.”

“Works of Houshang Moradi Kermani are considerable because of their very high effectiveness both inside and outside of Iran for various cultural- social groups with different ages and genders and also because of their concerns about important and pristine subjects. Likewise, the collection of pamphlets of Qara- Khitai Quran (Turkan Khatoon’s 18 slices) was registered in this meeting. This collection belongs to 7th AH century which has been handed down to us with exquisite decorations and the head and drawings and Quranic signs.”

 The National MOW Committee, as a branch of UNESCO’s national commission has been founded in 2005. Its aim is implementing the goals of the UNESCO’s MOW which was formed based on recognizing, informing and making available the documented heritage of countries in 1992.
