– German friends have suggested that children participating in the forum would be able to live in families from Lithuania, to the idea of associating remained in the realm of ideas, but that children really talk with each other and met each other. With such contacts are born later sincere friendships. Unfortunately, some have not managed to attain this the last button, but further meetings with us will be just that – close – says Jerzy Krupiczewicz.
