Memory of the World: An Introduction
Imagine what it would be like if the world lost its memory.
This video lip on the right is taken from the film Finding Nemo. It shows what happens when Dory, the blue fish, loses her 'short term memory'.
UNESCO is trying to help prevent the world losing part of its memory - in particular those memories which are in digital form.
On these pages you will find material from UNESCO's 'Memory of the World' programme.
They are in turn linked with all of the history curricula (MYP, IGCSE and IB) on this site.
