“Dedicated to all deserters and refuseniks”

This monument is “dedicated to all deserters and refuseniks, whose home is Mother Earth, who recognize in the enemy the brother of man, who, instead of listening to generals, listen to their conscience, who cling not to ideologies but to life, whose fear is smaller than their love.”

On May 8 was the 76th anniversary of the end of World War II. Let us remember that war, as well as all other fratricidal wars. Let us not allow ourselves to be fooled by any ideologies, by speakers with mouths full of meaningless promises, whose aim is only to confuse neighbor with neighbor, brother with brother, mother with daughter. Let us respect each other. Let’s respect everyone who gives as much as they can every day to make this world a better place for all of us. Every ideology, whatever it may be, stupefies and strips away the dignity of some social group. It is by refusing to think for ourselves and not protesting when someone next to us gets hurt, we contribute to creating hell on earth. Let’s be strong, wise, and supportive to each other!
