#StandWithUkraine

Spread the Word – Against the Lack of Knowledge

Following the Russian attack more than 8 months ago, the war in Ukraine is still going on. Among many others, librarians and libraries from all over Europe have been offering their support for the people in Ukraine, and for those who fled from their country. CENL set up this web page #StandWithUkraine with information from our members for those concerned.

The Federation of European Publishers (FEP) and the Frankfurt Book Fair invited international publishers and the book fair community to an event where the President of the Republic of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky addressed all with a video message.

Zelensky called for unity in Europe, and encouraged the attendees to spread the word against the lack of knowledge which enables states like Russia to continue to oppress their people and others.

Knowledge is power! And in this respect libraries and librarians can be very powerful and supportive.
