Travelling exhibition '' Neighbour ?language! - Stories from the Border Region''
The exhibition shows people - from student to senior citizens - from the Saxon-Polish-Czech border region and tells their very personal stories of opening up to the neighbouring languages of Polish and Czech and to the culture of their neighbours. Find out, for example, how master baker Armin Hübner managed to open up to his Polish neighbours through curiosity, a sense of tradition and an open heart, or how young Anna Käsche first spent a year as a volunteer in Ústi nad Labem and has since found a second home in the Czech Republic.
With the exhibition, we want to show how diverse the very personal motives of individual people are to learn Polish or Czech, and what diverse opportunities and added value can result for them in the border region. The exhibition is intended to provide impulses and encouragement to set out on the same path and to tap into the potential of our neighbourhood with Poland and the Czech Republic.
