Syria’s Cultural Heritage in Conflict

5/06/17 7pm

  • This event has passed.

Caabu and The Mosaic Rooms are pleased to present a talk by Ross Burns. This is a rare opportunity to hear the author discuss Aleppo and the rich history of this important city, from its earliest history through to the modern era.

Ross Burns worked in the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs for 37 years until his retirement in 2003, with roles including Ambassador to Syria and Lebanon (based in Damascus) from 1984 to 1987, as Minister in Paris (and Ambassador to UNESCO) and as Ambassador in South Africa (1992 95), Athens (1998-2001) and Tel Aviv (2001-2003). He is the author of Monuments of Syria, Damascus: A History, and Aleppo: A History.

Few people have done more to promote and preserve an understanding of extraordinary heritage of Syria than Ross Burns. This authoritative work on the history of Aleppo, one of the world’s oldest cities stands proudly alongside his ‘Monuments of Syria’ and ‘Damascus: A History’, detailing the unique treasures that survive but many that have been lost forever.” – Caabu Director, Chris Doyle on Ross Burns’ book on Aleppo: A History. 

Seating is limited so RSVP is essential.
