“Not only government to government, but institution to institution…so there is quite a lot of understanding among the British public.” Ambassador Hailemichael also dismissed the long-held myth that Ethiopia does not have the capability to properly store the objects should they be permanently returned.
He mentioned the national museum in Addis Ababa along with other modern museums such as the ones in Lalibela, Axum, Gondar, and Harar as well as universities with active programs on cultural heritage management.
The primary goal of the British invasion, which has been called “history’s most expensive hostage rescue operation,” was to free a group of European missionaries who were being held by Emperor Tewodros.
The Ethiopian king had become upset after he failed to receive a reply to a letter that he had sent to Queen Victoria proposing to establish diplomatic and military alliance with his European counterpart.
More than a decade ago Ethiopia had officially asked for restitution of the country’s looted treasures, that are being held at various locations in England. According to Thomas Ofcansky and David Shinn’s book entitled , the British army had employed approximately 15 elephants and 200 mules to transport the bounty seized from the treasury of Emperor Tewodros II and several Ethiopian Orthodox Christian churches.
Speaking on how attitudes about the looted treasures have changed, Ambassador Hailemichael told in a recent podcast interview that “many people in Britain — the public at large, media, higher education, [those] interested in culture — are all sympathetic to Ethiopia’s demand for the return of these objects” and further hoped that individuals “would understand, the government would understand, the institutions will understand and accept this demand for the objects to be returned to Ethiopia.” This month the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) in the U. helped to reignite a public dialogue on the topic of the Mekdela treasures when it made an offer to loan Ethiopia the items on a long term contract.
“My government is not interested in loans, it is interested in having those objects returned.” The gesture from V&A was made on the eve of the museum’s current exhibition that opened on April 5th showcasing its Meqdela collection on the 150th anniversary of the battle.“The whole of Ethiopia is a museum of its cultural heritage,” Hailemichael said at one point during the interview.“The Ethiopian churches have been custodians of such religious objects for centuries,” Hailemichael added.Tadias Magazine By Tadias Staff April 22nd, 2018 New York (TADIAS) — Ethiopia’s Ambassador to the U.
