  3. Georg NACHTSHEIM - 27/10/2008


    Chief of Staff of the HQ Eurocorps


    On the occasion of the La Rochelle summit on May 22nd, 1992, François Mitterrand and Helmut Kohl took the official decision of creating the Eurocorps. Initiated in October 1991 by a common will of both founding states, France and Germany, Headquarters Eurocorps settled down in 1992 and built up in the heart of Strasbourg.

    After Belgium in 1993, Spain in 1994 and Luxembourg joining the founding states in 1996, today countries such as Poland, Austria and Turkey are also participating in this multinational cooperation. In 2009 other nations such as Romania, the United States and Italy will join Headquarters Eurocorps.

    The missions for which the Eurocorps is designed and trained are the collective defence of the Allies, peace-restoring and peace-keeping, and humanitarian missions.

  5. Jean-Louis DE VALMIGERE - 28/07/2008


    Secretary General of the Festival of the European Cultures and Flavours


    Jean-Louis de Valmigère, Secretary General of the Festival of the European Cultures and Flavours shared his impressions of the preparatory edition of the festival that took place July 10 to 13, 2008. There one could participate in roundtables and conferences, taste food samples, and discover the different handicrafts and products of Europe … during these days the capital of Alsace was turned into a meeting place of European gastronomy that one could simply not evade.
    These impressions make us curious about the surprises of the 2009 edition of the Festival of the European Cultures and Flavours. In meantime you can meet Jean-Louis de Valmigère in one of his two “Winstub” in the heart of Strasbourg: “Chez Yvonne” nearby the Cathedral or “Zuem Strissel”, at Place de la Grande Boucherie.

      Polish National Day

    • The Polish National Day takes place on May 3 in honor of the first Constitution of this country which was adopted on 3 May 1791. The Polish constitution was written by the bourgeois and nobles of the four years diet under the rule of the last king of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania Stanislas II.

      This constitution was the first constitution voted in Europe. It covered many essential points to reform the institutions and organize the life of the Polish people:

      - it recognized rights to farmers

      - it keeps the hereditary monarchy and its executive power

      - it declared the political rights of representatives

      - it limited the size of the standing army

      - it imposed land management.

      Since then, the 3rd May has become a yearly holiday celebrating the adoption of the Polish constitution.
