Did you know that the place of Jesus Christs’ Birth is still not recognized as the World Heritage?… but hopefully soon it will be!
Visitor Information Center in Bethlehem would like to inform you that UNESCO declared that Palestinians may be soon able to include the Church of the Nativity and the Pilgrimage route in Bethlehem as their first site on the World Heritage List! As well as 36 other proposed sites will be reviewed by the Heritage Committee during its next meeting in San Petersburg at the end of the month of June 2012.
Palestine, which became a member of UNESCO in October 2011 will be presented for the first time for inclusion on the World Heritage List during the meeting in the period from 24th June till 6th July in Russia. Wish us good luck! 🙂
