Comment Neelie (Kroes)
Making speeches talk
[...] One the one hand, in 1914, Europe's nationalism divided our continent and ignited the First World War. Leading to millions of deaths of young men and women - who would have had a whole and meaningful life in front of them - on Europe’s battlefields. On the other hand, the year 1944 represents an almost unprecedented unification between allies which made it possible to defeat Nazi Germany.
