22.02.2015 : Learning from History

France and Germany had fought against each other in three terrible wars between 1870 and 1945; now they are both together promoting the Minsk-Initiative for Peace to stop war within the borders of Ukraine. What had changed since 1945 ? Firstly, one basic tool of understanding was Youth Exchange ! Secondly, ten years after World War II the border areas of Saarland and of Elsass-Lothringen got the chance to vote peacefully where to stay in the future : fortunately the first part made a decision for Germany - the other for France ! Thirdly : today within an united Europe there is no border at all any more between France and Germany !

The European Retail Academy has members from Kiew and Donezk, from Russia and all areas from all over the world. According to its President Prof.Dr.B.Hallier - also in his function as an Honorary Ambassador of Peace from the Youth Forum - the ERA-members should stimulate especially exchanges between all parties involved ! The next chance for this will be the Astana Youth Forum in May 2015.
