Endangered Syrian documents taken into safekeeping at the National Archives of Finland
Press release of the Finnish Minister of Education, “Endangered Syrian documents taken into safekeeping at the National Archives of Finland” (2 December 2016).
The National Archives of Finland, an agency operating under the Ministry of Education and Culture, has during this autumn taken digital copies of documents that have become endangered due to the Syrian Civil War into safekeeping. While hoping that the original documents will survive the destruction of the war, Finland has for its part wanted to ensure that the information contents will be preserved for future generations by serving as a haven for the documents.
