Feedback to the European Tolerance Talks

Even though I wasn’t there in person, you made it possible for me to follow this year’s tolerance talks. And I want to congratulate you all on your choice of topic and its implementation in lectures, workshops and discussions. You have hit a nerve. Truth and reality are the decisive issues of our time, because only trust in the truthfulness of discussion partners and information creates trust. And trust is the prerequisite for successful coexistence in a reality that is understood and experienced as shared – bravo! With thanks for keeping me up to date and best wishes, your Nikolaus Schneider, former Chairman of the Council of the Evangelical Church in Germany

Now that I have arrived back in Münster, I wanted to thank you: Thank you very much for the invitation, the hospitality on site, the wonderful event and the opportunity for lasting encounters! Ahmad Milad Karimi, Islamic scholar

I like the atmosphere in Fresach, it’s uncomplicated and because the format is medium, the people who are really or supposedly important and the audience can talk to each other without having to overcome great distances. Wolfgang Müller-Funk, cultural scientist.

The tolerance talks were a celebration of discussions and suggestions. I drove home enriched and happy and couldn’t even be shaken by the fact that the train stood around halfway in the middle of nowhere because of track damage. Robert Menasse, author

Dear organization, now you have made it. I admire your commitment and that of the whole team. Impressive. Thank you and happy Pentecost. Hans-Georg Häusel, Munic

Please express my personal thanks to the photographer: I believe these are the best and, above all, most authentic photos that have ever been taken of me. Good job. Greetings to all, Georg Michalik, CoCreative

I am very happy that I was allowed to be there. You are doing a wonderful job.
Best regards, Seyran Ateş, founder of the mosque

Congratulations on the great success of the European Tolerance Discussions 2018. On behalf of the students and also on my own, I would like to thank you for offering our schools this year the opportunity to treat important topics more intensively and to experience outstanding speakers allowed.

I was deeply impressed not only by the organization and the selection of competent speakers, but also by the discussions, in which constructively overly controversial points of view were exchanged. As a speaker, I was able to take home so many suggestions. Gerhard Schweizer, author and orientalist
