Salvador Dalí in Silver and Gold: Die Kuratoren der Heimat- und Geschichtsvereine konnten im Mai 2019 bei ihrer Frühjahrstagung im Museum Europäische Kunst auf Schloß Nörvenich bei Köln im Bundesland Nord-Rhein-Westfallen (Germany) zwei meisterliche Porträtbüsten des weltberühmten Surrealisten Salvador Dalí (Spanien) sehen. Geschaffen hat sie eine junge Bildhauerin der staatlich anerkannten Akademie "International Make-up Cooperation" des Art-Direktors Klaus Boernert in D-79761 Waldshut-Tiengen (Germany).

Lajos Tar gave a benefit concert for Hungary

Mayor Gabor Ferenczi thanks for the solidarity across the borders

 

 

Lajos Tar in concert: The Hungarian guitar virtuoso, composer and church musician, despite his many various duties in Europe, became engaged also in benefit events in his professional and social area. "Through the many facets of my music, I want to build the bridges of understanding", says Tar, who can be reached in Germany through the Europäische Kultur-Stiftung (at the Nörvenich Castle near Cologne).

This intention also corresponds to the global thinking of the former US President Ronald Reagan, who was very friendly towards Europe, and who in a letter to the EKS foundation wrote:

 

„We must build cathedrals of peace,

where the people can live in peace."

The question is: Will the White Man become extinct? Protests and Challenge

Ein Beobachtungs-Bericht von Korrespondent B. John Zavrel

 

 

 

The German politician Thilo Sarrazin is presently the most courageous European politician, who openly criticizes the wrong policiees of the political establishment. The leading German magazines DER SPIEGEL and BILD ZEITUNG have reported on his best-seller book, titled "Germany Destroys Itself".

The governing parties CDU/CSU and SPD, together with the German Chancellor Angela Merkel do nor respond to his criticism.

Worries about the Dalai Lama: Recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize is now in hospital

New hope after thorough examination in New Delhi

Von Parlaments-Korrespondent Joe F. Bodenstein

 

The Dalai Lama as a young man. The photo was taken by the correspondent Joe F. Bodenstein from the world-wide press agency AP (New York), a short time after the escape in 1959 of the Buddhist leader from the invading Chinese occupation soldiers in Tibet. He was the first international correspondent, who due to security reasons, met the Dalai Lama at a secret location: in a camp in the Himalayas, protected by the Indian solders from China, which considered the world known refugee as its enemy. "The young man about 6 ft tall also asked me question, which showed me that he had knowledge about world events and history. Despite his bad political situation with the justified worries that he could be handed over by India to his haters in Peking, he was calm and collected. His opinions about the future and politics in general gave me confidence in him, which was confirmed by future professional contacts over decades.
