23/06/2022 | 16:02:16 Thank you, Mister President. Dear colleagues, Millions of migrants attempt to reach Europe hoping for a better future for themselves and their loved ones.

I think this is characterised by various attempts. Attempts for example to teach history. It needs to be done in an objective and interesting way. That brings me to some conclusions. Let's jump back some decades when we ourselves were at... 25/01/2022 | 18:52:38 Thank you Mr President. Ladies and Gentlemen, dear colleagues, Of course, I support the excellent report of our colleague Ms Annicka ENGBLOM. It is a very important and timely report.
