History, ‘Forgiveness and Reconciliation' in Wroclaw, European Capital of Culture 2016

The Artistic Team of European Capital of Culture, Wroclaw 2016, were honoured to meet and welcome His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama to Wroclaw.

'His Holiness, recalling the great violence of the 20th century, urged that if the 21st century is to be different, in future solutions to problems must be sought through meaningful dialogue in a spirit of forgiveness and reconciliation. He repeated how impressed he is by the spirit of the European Union which places the common interest over narrower national interests. He asked his young listeners: “What do you think? It will be you young brothers and sisters who can build a more peaceful world and it will be you who benefit from it. I don’t expect to live to see it.”
