Der Platz des europäischen Versprechens ist ein Platz voller Namen – nicht für oder gegen Europa, sondern für die Versprechen von vielen Menschen. Der Platz liegt mitten in Europa, und Europäer füllen ihn mit ihren Gedanken. Was ist dein Versprechen?

We are women and men
of the 21st century,
and we must learn now
to live between the languages.

The peoples of Europe are a work in progress

The peoples of Europe are a work in progress and always must be… The history of the people of Europe has not ended – it never will. Ethnogenesis is a process of the present and future as much as it is the past. No efforts of romantics, politicians, or social scientists can preserve once and for all some essential soul of a people or nation. Nor can any effort ensure that nations, ethnic groups, and communities of today will not vanish utterly in the future. The past may have set the parameters within which one can build the future, but it cannot determine what that future must be. Patrick J. Geary
