Decision : CONF 201 VIII.C
Inscription: The Luther Memorials in Eisleben and Wittenberg (Germany)

The Luther Memorials in Eisleben and Wittenberg




The Committee decided to inscribe the nominated property on the basis of criteria (iv) and (vi), considering that it is of outstanding universal value bearing unique testimony to the Protestant Reformation, which was one of the most significant events in the religious and political history of the world and constitutes outstanding examples of 19th century historicism.

The Committee congratulated the German authorities on this nomination and considered that its symbolic value clearly justifies inscription under cultural criterion (vi).
