The most famous phrase of the talented person, first president of the Czech Republic, dramaturg, and fighter for the human rights – Václav Havel, is “Pravda a láska zvítězí nad lží a nenávistí” or “Truth and love will triumph over the lies and hatred”. These words are of a deep meaning. What should we do, in order not to occur in the situation of lie, hate, humiliation, and even war?

Quran, the holy book of Muslims, teaches us to study, to learn, to examine. Why? That is because, the past brings forth to the future and to live in the better future, we should learn from the past, we should collect as much expirience and knowledge as we can. 
The history of some sole nation is not always shared with every nation, but together we are going towards the future, we are creating the future, the history, the life.

In the event, Lilia Gerber-Khousnutdinova (KITAP chairperson), read the page from the book (in Czech “Z dětství čerpám síly”)written by her Mother, based on the memories of their family. 

Then, the Golden accordion, musician, accordionist-virtuoso Crimean Tatar Server Abkerimov, talked about his family past, memories of his Grandmother about their deportation from Crimea to the desert steppes of Uzbekistan in 1944, and he played his own compositions, based on these stories – Ana Avasi (native motive) and Hatira (memory).
