Inspired by the quote accredited to Martin Luther „If I knew, that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant an appletree”, a „tree of hope” was set up in our recent special exhibition. It was richly filled by young and adult visitors with their wishes and dreams. But what kind of wishes were hung up the most? Most important for our visitors seems to be peace and health. But there are many personal goals and dreams concerning the family, work and the personal future to be found. Now, that the special exhibition is over the „tree” was repot into the cabinet and can be seen by our visitors. Another smaller „tree” was made by the Sorbian school of Ralbitz during a project-day. The pupils looked into the matter of wishes and assigned wishes and thoughts to the roots, the trunk and the treetop, including wishes for the preservation of Lusatia [the local region] and the sorbian/wendish language. We follow with that wishes!
