We propose to include in the draft resolution of the 74th session of the UN General Assembly "Combating the glorification of Nazism, neo-Nazism and other practices that contribute to the escalation of modern forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance" recognizing the victory over Nazism in World War II War part of the world heritage of mankind, and monuments to the fighters against Nazism in all countries - the world memorial of mankind.
