Europe Day, held on 9 May every year, celebrates peace and unity in Europe. The date marks the anniversary of the historic “Schuman declaration” that sets out his idea for a new form of political cooperation in Europe, which would make war between Europe ‘s nations unthinkable. Schuman’s proposal is considered to be the beginning of what is now the European Union.

The EU institutions open their doors to the public every year in Brussels and Strasbourg, allowing citizens to visit the places where decisions impacting their day-to-day lives are made. Moreover, many inspired Europeans organize commemorative events to honor the historical importance of the date.

With this specific occasion in mind, the 6E decided to tackle one specific topic and even decided to present it in different classes… children‘s literature. We formed six groups, each one designed a poster on their book. In our diverse collection of books, we have “Das kleine Ich bin Ich”, “Der Regenbogenfisch”, and many more that you might have heard of. Of course, we wanted to welcome the variety that comes with the afore mentioned topic, so while presenting the different books the students took it into their own hands to read parts of the books out loud in different languages like, German, English, Serbian, Arabic, etc.. If you want to check out the posters, they are currently displayed on the billboards in front of room 210!
