But unlike the case of Auschwitz-Birkenau, there was more to the US Delegation’s objection to the Dome inscription than pure heritage philosophy and the inclusion of war sites on the List.

Ironically, these considerations in the US State Department (once more) raised the possibility of a joint nomination with a site in the US.
