Since many significant buildings in Padua's city centre have now been inscribed, Zamosc probably qualifies for the connection "dubbed as another WHS" as Padua of the North.

For Atlantida:
expressionist architecture, brick architecture, single monuments, built in the 20th century, freestanding bell tower

A proposal for a new connection: prevalent marine motives
Atlantida, Sydney Opera, Hamburg (Chilehaus, Sprinkenhof)

Connection: Neolithic age

Himā Cultural area - An ancient Palaeolithic and Neolithic site, the Bir Hima Complex covers the time period of 2500–1000 BC. (Wikipedia - Bir Hima Rock Petroglyphs and Inscriptions)

Connection: Recorded cultural discoveries

Himā Cultural area - The area was explored by the Philby-Ryckmans-Lippen expedition of 1951 and published by E. Anati (1969–72). Its rich heritage of rock petroglyphs caught the attention of Saudi Arabia's Department of Antiquities only after 1976 when Jubba and other sites were investigated. (Wikipedia - Bir Hima Rock Petroglyphs and Inscriptions)

Connection: Multilingual inscriptions

Himā Cultural area - The intensive traffic channeled through the property is reflected in tens of thousands of rock inscriptions. They occur in various scripts, such as the Al-Musmad alphabet of 29 letters, Aramaic-Nabatean, South-Arabian scripts, Thamudic and even in Greek, as well as Arabian. (Nomination text, p. 12)

Connection: Writing systems

Himā Cultural area - The inscriptions are an invaluable source of epigraphic understanding concerning the development of alphabetic writing. (Nomination text, p. 12)

Connection: Living indigenous religions

Himā Cultural area - The Bedouins living there are the descendants of some of the authors of the rock art and inscriptions, and the culture underwriting the rock art production still continues today. This is amply evident, for example through the continuing veneration of the fertility goddess Alia, which is a prominent feature in the Ḥimā rock art. (Nomination text, p. 12)

Connection: Mousterian

Himā Cultural area - The presence of Acheulian hand-axes and Mousterian implement types from the Cultural Rock Arts in Ḥimā Najrān has been reported, e.g. at ʿĀn Jamal and Sha'ib Hinmat. (Nomination text, p. 14)

Connection: Tumuli

Himā Cultural area - Ceramic remains of mid-to later Holocene times occur widely, and are especially common at a series of rock tumuli at Najd Sahi. (Nomination text, p. 14)

Connection: Dry Stone Construction

Himā Cultural area - The intensive traffic of caravans over millennia has resulted in great concentrations of archaeological surface evidence, particularly stone cairns, dry-laid stone tombs and extensive stone arrangements. (Nomination text, p. 15)

Els, I had some connection suggestions for Timgad & a new connection suggestion a week ago. Maybe you didn't see them because of the new sites?

Connection: Desert Cultural Landscapes

Himā Cultural area - The OUV of the nominated Property derives from several factors. The overarching cultural role implied by its name reflects the site's historical function as one of the most important desert wells in the Middle East, if not the world. The passage of vast armies and myriad caravans has resulted in an unequalled historical 'library on rock', comprising massive numbers of rock inscriptions and petroglyphs that reflect Arabia's history over the duration of the Holocene period. (...) The pristine preservation and spectacular desert setting also add to the OUV of the Property. (Nomination text, p. 5)

Connection: Goddesses

Himā Cultural area - The culture underwriting the rock art production still continues today. This is amply
evident, for example through the continuing veneration of the fertility goddess Alia, which is a prominent feature in the Ḥimā rock art. (Nomination text, p. 12)

Connection: Writing systems

Tassili n'Ajjer - There are Libyc and Tifinagh inscriptions (ancient and recent Tuareg/Berber script). Tifinagh, which often accompanies images, is a later Lybico-Berber script still used by modern Tuareg. (Rock Art of the Tassili n Ajjer, Algeria)

Connection: Desert Cultural Landscapes

Tassili n'Ajjer - The property contains all the key rock art sites and landscapes representing its natural beauty. (...) The richness of the cultural heritage of rock art and archaeological vestiges, together with the natural diversity of the ecosystem, fauna, flora and wetlands, fully reflect Outstanding Universal Value. (Unesco)

(Unesco)

I may be a bit nitpicking here, but the cultural OUV (the rock art) actually stems from a period before it was a desert: "Tassili beneficited from climatic conditions which were more favorable to human occupation". The word 'desert' also is not in the cultural OUV statement (as per criteria of the connection).

The rock art actually documents the climate change from the Holocene wet period towards desertification, with animal husbandry and camels being depicted in rock art from the latest period.
Plus, the Unesco description mentions "landscapes representing its natural beauty", meaning the current desert landscape.

Connection: Archipelagos

Amami-Oshima Island - The four islands are part of the Ryukyu Islands, a chain of Japanese islands that stretch southwest from Kyushu to Taiwan. (Wikipedia - Ryukyu Islands)

Connection: East China Sea

Amami-Oshima Island - The four islands are on a chain located in the southwest of Japan. The serial site forms an arc on the boundary of the East China Sea and Philippine Sea. (Unesco)

Connection: Uninhabited islands

Amami-Oshima Island - Entirely uninhabited by humans, the site has high biodiversity value with a very high percentage of endemic species, many of them globally threatened. (Unesco)
- Not correct

That's incorrect. By "site" it must refer to the sections of the islands like the forests that are uninhabited and not the entire island. All inscribed islands are inhabited. Wikipedia even has the number for Amami-Oshima at 73,000 people. The smallest, Iriomote, still has over 2k.

You are correct. It probably only refers to the sites itself, and not the islands.
