Europe 1 — Winston Churchill that sunny Sunday afternoon of 9 May 1948 on the Dam square in the heart of Amsterdam at the European rally “Europe 1” addressing the crowd with a “V” sign , saying :
“We hope to reach again a Europe … in which men will be proud to say, ‘I am a European’ …. a Europe where men of every country will think as much of being a European as of belonging to their native land, and that without losing any of their love and loyalty of their birthplace.
We hope wherever they go in this wide domain, to which we set no limits in the European Continent, they will truly feel “Here I am at home. I am a citizen of this country too”.

Life gives us gifts continually: Our heart to love – our soul to find true joy – and our conscience to increase our joy, by flexibility of our heart. Each of us should let his inner wealth flourish. Like Robert Maistriau, Youra Livschitz and Jean Franklemon have done. For which we are grateful to them, to this day.”
