Chapter Summary

High contracting parties have recognized that cultural property has suffered grave damage during recent armed conflicts and that, by reason of the developments in the technique of warfare, it is in increasing danger of destruction. The preservation of the cultural heritage is of great importance for all people of the world and that it is important that this heritage should receive international protection. Guided by the principles concerning the protection of cultural property during armed conflict, as established in the Conventions of The Hague of 1899 and of 1907 and in the Washington Pact of 15 April, 1935, this chapter discusses the provisions that the high contracting parties agreed upon in convention for the protection of cultural property in the event of armed conflict.
