»Glej, Damask bo kot mesto izginil in bo kup razvalin. Porušena mesta bodo opuščena, spremenila se bodo v pašnike za črede, ki bodo počivale in nihče jih ne bo motil…« (Sveto pismo, Izaija 17)


Tokratno objavo namenjamo kulturni dediščini Sirije, ki izginja v oboroženih spopadih.
Fotografije je posnel fotograf Sašo Kovačič, ki dela na fotodokumentarnem oddelku Muzeja novejše zgodovine Slovenije. Novembra leta 1996 se je s skupino muzejskih delavcev, ki jih je organiziral Dejan Vončina in vodil dr. Josip Korošec, podal na strokovno ekskurzijo po Siriji. Med drugim so obiskali mošeje Damaska in Alepa, zapluli do otoka Arwad, si ogledali znamenitosti Palmire, rimski amfiteater v Bosri, arheološka najdišča v Ebli, Mariju in Ugaritu, križarsko utrdbo Krak des Chevaliers, sloneli na obrežju Evfrata in uživali ob pogledu na antično utrdbo Dura-Europos. Nastalo je približno 1000 posnetkov na dia-filmih. Fotografije predstavljajo neprecenljiv zaklad podob znamenitosti in ljudi ter njihovega načina življenja, ki jih bodoče generacije ne bodo mogle v celoti občudovati, saj so bile uničene v vojni.

“Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap. The cities of Aroer are forsaken: they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make them afraid…” (Holly Bible, Isaiah 17)


This time we dedicate the post to the cultural heritage of Syria, which is disappearing in armed conflicts. Photographs are made by photographer Sašo Kovačič, who works at photo-documentary section of the National Museum of Contemporary History. In November 1996, a group of museum workers went to Syria on an excursion organized by Dejan Vončina and led by dr. Josip Korošec. Among other things, they visited the mosques of Damascus and Aleppo, they went to the island of Arwad, and they enjoyed the attractions of Palmira, the Roman amphitheatre in Bosra, archaeological sites in Ebla, Mari and Ugarit, Crusaders’ fortress Krak des Chevaliers, rested on the banks of the Euphrates and admiring the view of the ancient fortress Dura-Europos. During the journey the author shoot around 1000 images on reversal or dia films. Photos represent the priceless treasure of images of sights and people and their way of life that future generations will not be able to fully admire, as they were destroyed in the war.
