Valerie Magar
Conservator & Archaeologist of INAH (Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia), MEXICOIt never ceases to amaze me how heritage has theability to develop passions, with both positive andnegative consequences.For some, heritage implies a strong responsibility toensure that speci
c elements are maintained andconserved now and for future generations. Thereare many examples around the world of persons orgroups of persons devoting their lives as guardians ofspeci
c places or objects.Others also commit themselves, but in a di
erentmanner, placing their energy into sharing knowledgeand improving heritage conservation practices. Onevery close example of this is the very existence of thisJournal, sheltered in the Diadrasis initiative. The mereexistence of such an organization, in the middle ofthe largest economic and social crisis we have knownin many decades, is vivid proof of how much can bemoved by enthusiasm and passion for heritage. Inthe last number the birth of the organization waspresented and one year later some of the initial resultsof this endeavour are presented in this number withcontagious enthusiasm by Lucía Gómez-Robles andLaura-Melpomeni Tapini.Others still are fascinated by the untold stories,waiting to be discovered in every heritage object orsite. Gabriela Fernández Flores gives us an overviewof America’s
rst Cathedral, with insigths to some ofits mysteries, and the many e
orts that have bothshaped and attempted to preserve this iconic buildingin the Dominica Republic.But there can also be a less attractive side to thesepassions. Because objects and sites are embeddedwith values which relate to the identity and historyof speci
c cultural groups, heritage can be a cleartarget for destruction. We have witnessed targeteddestructions in recent armed con
icts in the last twodecades in every continent. Over the last weeks, wehave seen deliberate destruction of irreplaceableheritage sites in Mali. This raises di
cult questions onownership and rights to control, and as in this case,dispose of these Su
buildings.Heritage seems to be at its most fragile point whensocial and political turmoil appear. The article by Amr A.H. Fangary and Malak N. Wahba gives us an insight intothe current situation in Egypt, both in terms of shiftingsituations within heritage institutions due to politicalchanges, and the many risks faced by heritage due tosocial unrest and reduced surveillance. They also openthe other dark side of passions enticed by heritage,that of looting and illicit tra
c. Con
icting identitiesseem to always have formed a part of human history,and it is only in recent history, since the mid-twentiethcentury that speci
c policies and internationalorganizations have been created to protect heritage,and use it purposefully to unite communities andpromote tolerance, common understanding andpeace. But destroying heritage for pure greed, passion
