22 January is Franco German Day. Minister of State Roth will discuss with pupils in Berlin
Michael Roth, Minister of State for Europe, and French Ambassador Maurice Gourdault-Montagne will meet pupils from the French Grammar School in Berlin on Wednesday, 22 January.
In 2014 we will be commemorating three events which have had a significant impact on Europe as it is today: the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, the 75th anniversary of the outbreak of the Second World War and the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Franco-German Day provides an opportunity to discuss with the pupils the significance of these events for the friendship between our two countries and their contribution to the debate on the future of Europe.
Minister of State Roth and Ambassador Gourdault-Montagne will be welcomed by their hosts, headmasters Daniel Bourgel and Bernhard Frank.
