Spanning dozens of centuries, the world heritage includes numerous historical monuments and symbols dating from antiquity to recent history. Whether we need to protect and preserve every one of them has become a point of contention lately. For example, is it necessary to protect historical objects created during Nazism and other violent regimes, that are laden with symbols of the era? Society seems to be in two minds about this. Some people believe that protecting such objects is a must because they are a part of our history. Others feel that such objects need to be destroyed because they are only associated with evil. Among this group, some aso feel that the Egyptian pyramids are, after all, the dictator pharaohs’ graves, that were built at tremendous human cost and thus are a symbol of inhumanity. What do you think? Is it necessary to protect and preserve all historical monuments and symbols?
