30 Years CARP-Rally Berlin 1987
5. - 6. August 2017
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
The year 2017 is a year of special anniversaries related to Europe. It has been 500 years since the Protestant Reformation initiated by Martin Luther and 100 years since the Russian Revolution inspired by Karl Marx. It is also 30 years since the visit of Hyo Jin Nim, at the time the leader of CARP, to Berlin, where he led a march to the Berlin Wall, calling for its removal. ("Die Mauer Muss Weg!") In honour of this CARP Rally, we would like to hold a commemorative meeting in Berlin to remember that event and recall the spirit of the time. The attached document contains details of the proposed programme.
Sincerely, Jack Corley, Regional President

A child experiences the love of the parents as the most valuable, a young grown up cherishes the love of his/her spouse the most. When children are born, the couple experiences an even deeper love: the love of parents towards their child. The most precious love is one step further: the love of grandparents towards their grandchildren. - read more

The Slovak chapter of WFWP organized an event entitled "Maria Theresia. The Female Aspect of Dominion" on the occasion of her 300th birthday (13.5.1717). Empress Maria Theresia who grew up in Vienna was crowned Queen of Hungary in Bratislava in June 1741; naturally quite many inhabitants showed great interest when the lecture was announced. Thanks to the support of some Austrian institution in town far more people than expected came; over 50 people found a place to sit or stand in the lecture hall, others did not get over the doorstep.
