We might be overloaded with images and stories from conflicts that seem never-ending. We might want to disengage with the many opposing views and retreat into our own little bubble.But that would be wrong. It is important to confront ourselves with different realities, because only through confrontation can we start to understand each other.
In this issue, we show a side of Europe that most of us have never known. Images of cars on fire, smoke rising from the streets and desperation in people’s eyes remind us of a distant past. Except it's happening right now.
We are young people who live in a Europe that has made many mistakes. Only by the means of confrontation can we start identifying these mistakes and learn from them.
We hope you enjoy our first issue,
