As   varied   as   the   contributions   were,   the   possibilities   to   remember   were   also   manifold. After   the   event   in   the   plenary   there   was   a   small   amount   to   eat   and   the   politicians   and guests   had   the   chance   to   visit   the   many   stalls.   We   also   held   some   talks   at   our   stall.   Among other   things,   we   were   informed   that   a   lecturer   at   the   Humboldt   University   would   like   to present   our   project   as   a   successful   example   of   a   history   mediation   in   a   seminar.   One   of her students was very happy to meet us in the house of representatives. 01/17/2017 On   our   working   meeting   we   decided   to   translate   our   site   into   English.   Now   the   texts   will   be distributed and the translating will start!
