Cultural heritage: an untold story

EC Ma Ndryshe today published the analysis "Cultural heritage: an untold story" which aims to review Kosovo’s primary and middle school history text books, approved by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology of Kosovo, in order to see how Kosovo’s cultural heritage is presented in these textbooks.

From a review of Kosovo’s history textbook, it can be seen that cultural heritage in these textbooks is presented in a very limited way. Nothing is said about the importance of cultural heritage and its connection with the formation of identity, or about the impact that cultural diversity can have on the development of tolerance, prevention of hatred, racism and other forms of discrimination which can cause conflict. These textbooks give no explanation of the concept of cultural heritage and it is even not mentioned anywhere. Read press release.
