“A lighttower of peace, freedom and humanity.”

Peter, 51, Germany

What makes you a European?

Born in Germany with its history, humanistic education with focus on Ancient Greece and Rome, travelling all over Europe, working in Germany and France, being married to an Italian, having a bilingual son.

And how does that show?

Believing in personal freedom, freedom of speech, human rights and everybody‘s right to search for luck, being aware that freedom and peace is most precious, but also very fragile.

What would Europe in your imagination be / look like?

A lighttower of peace, freedom and humanity. If Europe with its diverse people and its bloody history can bring freedom and peace to its peoples the whole world can do it.
