100 years of memories
The European Union is built on fundamental values such as freedom, democracy and respect for human rights. In order to fully appreciate their meaning, it is necessary to keep the memories of the past alive as a means of moving beyond the past and building the future. This year Europe marks 100 years from the end of the Great War, which led to unification and independence for some European countries, like Romania, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia.
The war reached out almost everyone’s life in some way or other. Most of young people, especially men, joined the army and fought for their country, which is no longer necessary today. Now, young people enjoy their full rights and benefit of a great range of opportunities, thanks to the European Union.
In order to keep the memory of the past alive, to really appreciate peace and liberty, values of the European Union, the young generation must understand how society has changed after all this years, by searching and comparing the life of their counterparts, a hundred years ago.
