Abstract

This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the key concepts discussed in the preceding chapters of this book. The book focuses on the Memory of the World Program; the organisation sees its role as being truly global and, in the case, as “embracing the documentary heritage of humanity”. It discusses the challenges faced by the city authorities in Berlin as they seek to manage and balance the multiple heritage values of the former Templehof Airport. The book considers how individuals from around the world seek to understand their personal heritages through their ancestral connections to emigrants from the Hebridean island of Tiree. It shows how the Kings Park Board, an instrumentality of the Western Australian state government, has shifted and broadened its interpretation of heritage over a period of more than a century. The book traces the efforts of small municipal authorities in rural Taiwan to both recognise and benefit from aspects of their pasts.
