In March 2007, on the eve of the fourth anniversary of the looting of the Iraq Museum in Baghdad, the museum's former director Donny George Youkhanna asked the world to pause on April 10-12, 2007 ... light a candle ... and remember the destruction that occurred at the Iraq Museum in April 2004 and is continuing to occur to ancient sites across Iraq and around the world every day.

The first Candlelight Vigil took place on the steps of the Iraq Museum on the morning of April 10th. Over the next few days, dozens of Candlelight Vigils and other events took place at museums, universities, schools and other venues around the world. This five-minute video memorializes those events.
