The UNESCO Memory of the World Program was established to encourage the protection of archives of important materials. The preparation of General Guidelines for the Program was initiated through a contract with IFLA (International Federation of Library Associations), together with the compilation, by IFLA and ICA (International Council on Archives), of lists of irreparably damaged library collections and archive holdings. Through its National Commissions, UNESCO prepared a list of endangered library and archive holdings and a world list of national cinematic heritage.
The Memory of the World Register comprises nearly 300 documents and collections from five continents. Che Guevara’s works are among 54 new additions this year. (Click here for an account of the addition.) A number of collections have been added from the United States, including the papers of Eleanor Roosevelt.

I suggest that you reply to her tweet with a link to the Holocaust inscriptions that were also made this year to the Memory of the World Register? The following is just a suggestion.
