The tragic looting of the Iraq Museum was an unthinkable heartbreak, but also an inspiration for the creation of SAFE. Sadly, the tragedy continues with the destruction of archaeological sites, to this very day. Not only in Iraq, but around the world.

On the tenth anniversary, we invite you to share your reflections on global cultural heritage in The Donny George Candlelight Vigil for Global Heritage. Another simple way to participate is to light your own personal virtual candle below and join us on Facebook.

"The Iraq Museum stands as just one glaring example of the injustices we do to the archaeological past whether by purposeful acts or general ignorance of what we do to the remains of the past."
