Beschrijving The Father of Europe

A PhD thesis turned into a children's book. An educational book on European and worldwide citizenship.

Amira travels with her father from Wandlitz in Germany to Paris. They fled from Syria five years ago. Amira lost her mother in a bomb attack and still suffers from this loss although she does not show it. She and her father now want to discover Europe, and what is more … get to know the Father of Europe, Robert Schuman. Amira’s father knows that Schuman, together with others, started the first peaceful revolution in Europe! They make leaps through time and discover the amazing way of thinking that brought this Father of Europe to put the person at the heart of all and everything. This might be a way to achieve peace in Syria too, she thinks. Knowing him makes Amira extremely happy, because she now knows how to cope with the loss of her mom and how to make the world a better place!
