I spent two years in Honolulu and I have great memories of that and I learned a quite a lot for my life. This is part of our first class of ’51 and we’re glad to have so many members of the class of ’51 here today. Would you just raise your hand, the ’50ies, people from the ’50ies, please raise your hand. Okay, look! Well, it has been an an absolutely great experience. I have been to Missoula, Montana and this in the years ’51 to ’52 and so I’ll have learned a busy there, but also had a bit of fun, held lectures and spoke at the radio and managed there to get the bachelor degree and the master of arts in between this one year. Educational exchange is a cornerstone of the Austrian-American relationship. Nearly 6,000 as we said Austrian and American students, teachers, professors, scholars and scientists have the the honor of calling themselves Fulbrighters. I can only say that it changed my life this is true, this is no PR, I then closed friendships that keep until today. Fulbright is one of the greatest acts of creative diplomacy and international cooperation of the past century. Senator Fulbright recognized the educational exchanges will serve as as a powerful tool for promoting peace and friendship among nations. I consider this to be one of the most important things in life that people interact with each other, people communicate. People learn to understand other people and I find it so incredibly important and great that Senator Fulbright has backed this idea.
