Occupied Jerusalem, ALRAY – UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) set an opening date for an exhibition on the history of Jewish presence in the Palestinian land.

The exhibition titled “ Book, People, Land- The 3,000 Year Relationship of the Jewish People With the Holy Land” ,was previously postponed because 22 Arab countries rejected it, while the Israeli occupation, U.S, Canada, and some Jewish organizations around the world criticized the suspension.

UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova told the Wiesenthal Center that the exhibit, which the center organized along with the governments of Canada and Montenegro,  will open on June 11, 2014, at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris.

The exhibit consists of 30 illustrated panels and explanatory texts.

Rabbi Marvin Hier, the founder and dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center said in a statement,  There is no connection between the exhibition and U.S Secretary of State John Kerry’s efforts to revive the Middle East  peace process.

The United States and Israel lost their UNESCO voting rights last November after suspending funding to the organization for its recognition of Palestine.
