Twenty students from former Yugoslavia, who added the passport to their report cards, and they continued their careers in Germany, gathered in a pub in Berlin, and it seems that they had a great time. Selfie created that night sent a difficult, but a strong message to those who remained in these divided and disputed countries.
They made fun of the tabloid titles so they wrote this with the picture:
- (PHOTO) SCANDAL! Bosnians, Montenegrins, Croats, and Serbs were in a cafe last night in Berlin, ie, economists, mathematicians, physicists, sociologists, doctors, marketers, psychologists, pharmacists, informatics, statisticians, and YOU WON'T BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED NEXT! They sat down for a drink, they were hanging out and they were laughing! The moral of the story: it's not important where were you born and in what God you believe in, but if you are an asshole or a good person! - written under the photo.
When a question appears next time in the media where are young doctors, pharmacists, experts, and intellectuals - the answer is ready. They are in Germany (or in some other country), they are going to school, they work, and they are having a better time than most of Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro... They are somewhere where the language, culture common history bind them, and not divide them.
They are great. The countries that they left, probably forever - not so much.
What do you think about this? Are younger generations better with neighbors than before? Or is it possible for them to be friends only when they are in a different country? Or the divisions of former Yugoslavia don't affect the smart and educated people?
