"Every person with free will"

Maxim Znak's notes from prison in Belarus
16:00 – 20:00 Uhr

"Every person with free will is a treasure trove of living thoughts", writes Anna Wischnak, who was imprisoned for political reasons. On the day of the 300th anniversary of the birth of the philosopher of freedom Immanuel Kant, the study day is dedicated to the testimony of hope for freedom and peace as it is currently being formulated in Belarusian prisons. In particular, the notes of Maxim Znak, lawyer and member of the Coordinating Council of the Democratic Opposition, who is currently in prison, will be read and discussed. The study day is intended as a sign of solidarity with refugees from Belarus and the detainees.
