2014 is a special year for us Europeans – a special year of commemoration.

Seventy-five years ago, Germany attacked its neighbour Poland, plunging the world into a Second World War.
Twenty-five years ago, the Berlin Wall fell, bringing an end to the world’s decades-long division into East and West.
