Penn and Smithsonian Help Syrian Museums

Penn Cultural Heritage Center and Smithsonian join forces to offer training and support for Syrian museum collections.
“While it is very difficult for international heritage organizations to travel into Syria today, there are a number of Syrians who regularly risk their lives to protect their cultural heritage,” [...] About 20 people from several Syrian provinces attended the first training, held in an undisclosed location outside of Syria [...] The objectives of the workshop were three-fold: to offer information on how to secure museum collections safely during emergencies; to provide participants with basic supplies for packing and securing museum collections, and to begin a dialogue among Syrian participants about emergency responses.
