I was delighted to have visited the Liberty Seminar, organised by Tanja Stumberger under Cato Institute auspices, last year. It was a completely new experience for me, although it brought back memories of my career as university lecturer!
The intelligent and understanding response by the students to my talk was very encouraging. They understood the importance of remembering what happened to our countries in the recent past. Afterwards over lunch, I had the opportunity to talk to many of those attending, and it was truly invigorating.
I should like to congratulate Tanja on her initiative and hard work in initiating and running last year's Seminar. We are very pleased at the CRCE be co-operating once again this year in this extremely useful event, indeed two events I believe.
My wife, Susan, who accompanied Lisl and me to Bohinj, joins with me in sending her regards. We hope it may be possible to be with you once again and wish you well with this year's organisation.
