IBB ''Johannes Rau'' in Minsk
IBB ‘Johannes Rau’ Minsk has, in the twenty years since its founding, developed into a wonderful and, in its own way, unique place in Belarus: Today IBB Minsk is a place of reconciliation, where the horrible wounds of recent history are allowed to heal. It has become a place of encounter, where people like to go to and like to return, a house where strangers can become friends.
Chairman of the board, IBB Dortmund
It is a house, where the most diverse people come together with their thoughts, their feelings and their opinions, and can speak out and listen to each other in a respectful way. And it has become a place where one can enrich oneself with knowledge and experience. The idea of a common house has, in these twenty years, developed into a house of common projects.
This task of IBB “Johannes Rau” Minsk – to be a place of human understanding, of societal dialogue and of exchange in Europe – is as current today as it was twenty years ago.
