Holiday Period Closure from 21st December to 2nd January 2020

“Take on the challenge and be open”, is how the Chairman of the Association of Friends, Hansgeorg Hauser (photo), subtitles his greetings for the festive season. Hauser recommends that in this age of modern communication we should talk directly to one another more often. And: “We must learn to argue again without foaming at the mouth and learn to tolerate our differences. A person who argues can pull himself/herself together again. A person who doesn’t speak and what’s more doesn’t listen cannot arrive at solutions. Speechlessness means standstill.”

“Let us make sure that our society keeps talking” is what Hauser wishes for the coming year. At the end of every discussion it should be possible to find a mutual compromise; “because the ability to compromise is one of the strengths of democracy”.

In this spirit Hansgeorg Hauser wishes all friends of Haus der Seidenkultur and the active volunteer “a peaceful and fulfilled life in 2020”.

Following the break over the festive season starting on December 21st, our museum will open again on Thursday, January 2nd. All the best until then.
