This year's 19th Summer School of the International Culture Center began July 9 with a lecture delivered by Slovak ambassador to Poland Magda Vás˘áryova. Entitled 20 Year Generation Gap Between You and Me, the lecture introduced students to the subjects of the Summer School's two courses: 20 Years After the Fall of Communism. Cultural Policy in Central Europe and Management of UNESCO World Heritage Cultural Sites in Visegrad Countries.

Mechtild Rössler, Ph.D., the director of the Europe and North America UNESCO World Heritage Center in Paris, called on the students to work for better management of world cultural heritage. She mentioned the recent case of Dresden's being dropped from the world culture heritage list. According to Rössler, future world heritage managers, many of whom study and exchange experiences at courses organized by the International Culture Center, should make sure such situations never happen again.

The organizers admitted 48 people to the courses from countries including Germany, Austria, Moldova, Romania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Belarus, Ukraine, Serbia, Slovakia, Spain, Turkey, Hungary, Lithuania, Georgia, the Czech Republic and Poland.

So far, the center has held almost 60 summer sessions for over 2,000 students from around the world. The educational programs seek to provide students and young scientists with an opportunity to engage in an international dialogue on contemporary politics, culture and social issues.
