At the commemorative event for Europe’s Sinti and Roma on January 27, 2019, in my capacity as Buber appointee of the BUBER DORATI FESTIVAL I met German Moyzhes. He is travelling all over Europe in his manyfold functions as activist for the Lew Kopelew forum as well as practising his core business: law. German – ordinarily domiciled in St. Petersburg and Cologne – presented some of BUBER DORATI FESTIVAL’s maxims to Minister of State Michael Roth and also to Federal Foreign Office’s special commissioner, Michaela Küchler. We decided, we could actually regard our mutual interests in Martin Buber’s and Lew Kopelew’s philosophy as a joint venture in future … a wonderful encounter!
