What is the code of aleppo syria

Aleppo in SyriaReconstruction of the rubble city

He has already been declared crazy, the archaeologist Mamoun Fansa. The Berlin professor comes from Aleppo, and some of his professor colleagues simply cannot understand why people should already think about rebuilding Aleppo now, even though the fighting there is still going on. Accusations...

"... from many colleagues who are used to only reacting according to plan. But I have no plan. My only wish is that the old town of Aleppo is not destroyed. I can't wait long and make plans. Me have to do something. "

A year and a half ago, Fansa sounded the alarm with his book "Aleppo - A War Destroys World Cultural Heritage" and caused a sensation around the world.

The situation in Aleppo has worsened dramatically. 80 percent of the old town is in ruins, 50 percent of the residents have fled. But the destruction is not a coincidental product of the war. Some of them were brought about intentionally by the Syrian government.

This is also bitter for the group of German urban planners and architects who worked on the future of Aleppo until the outbreak of the civil war - for 17 years, from 1994 to 2011. Anette Gangler from the University of Stuttgart:

"Many buildings have fallen apart. As a result of the awareness of this cultural heritage, investments have begun, especially in the development of tourism. There were approaches here that made us all believe that this city will prosper again, can become very attractive again. "

A misconception - at least so far. Syria's government is waging a war against its own people in Aleppo. And, especially perverse: she bombed Aleppo. Not just to meet rebels. But also to plan the city precisely for the time after the war.

Existing residents are to be permanently evicted

Hilmar von Lojewski, member of the German Association of Cities with extensive experience in Syria:

"We know about the plans in Damascus. There, in individual locations, an aerial warfare for urban development actually took place. The informal settlements, which were a constant nuisance for the regime, the informal settlements, those thorns in the flesh of formal urban development, you have now to eliminate the chance, and the regime will not miss the chance, because the resistance arose out of these informal settlements. "

There is already a Ministry for Reconstruction in Damascus. But the previous residents are to be permanently evicted.

Entries in the land registry have been deleted, even entire land registry offices are said to have been burned by the government - so that the homeowners cannot return and space is created for new investors.

However, this tactic should not work - because of the German commitment. Because the planners have digitized the city archive and all land registry offices. No matter how much you burn of it in Syria - the documents are available in Stuttgart and can be called up on a computer.
Anette Gangler:

"The city plan is a historical document. That is why the cadastral plans are of the utmost importance. These cadastral plans have all been digitized and are now the basis for updating the changes in the city."

It is now a matter of throwing all the levers to the stop, says Hilmar von Lojewski. He wants a moratorium. Immediately after peace, no building should be allowed - so that no rampant large-scale projects can be realized, as happened in Beirut.
