Wunderschön! Luxemburg – Kleines Land, großes Herz Unterwegs mit Stefan Pinnow

WDR Fernsehen, Sonntag, 23. November 2014, 20.15 – 21.45 Uhr

Es liegt in der Mitte Europas, ist ungefähr so groß wie das Saarland und hat etwa so viele Einwohner wie Bremen: das Großherzogtum Luxemburg. Stefan Pinnow zeigt, dass der Staat und die Stadt Luxemburg mehr sind als ein Finanzplatz und eine der Schaltzentralen der EU. Begleitet wird er von einem Fernseh-Urgestein: Jean Pütz wuchs in Luxemburg, der Heimat seiner Mutter, auf. Gemeinsam besuchen sie sein (Groß-)Elternhaus in Remich an der Mosel, sehen sich Luxemburg unter Tage an, besuchen die Ausstellung „Family of Man“ in der Abtei von Clervaux und erkunden die Hauptstadt samt „Europameile“ und Kasematten. Stefan Pinnow macht einen Ausflug auf die Burg Vianden, stellt die warmen Quellen in Bad Mondorf vor und gibt Tipps für eine Wanderung ins Müllerthal.

Wiederholung am 30. November um 14.15 Uhr.

Nelson Mandela – From Prisoner to President

From April, 29 to September,28 the National Museum of Resistance in Esch / Alzette will host the international exhibition "Nelson Mandela, From Prisoner to President", which was elaborated by the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg.

The exhibition

The 27 long years that Nelson Mandela was forced to spend in prison are partly why he is known all over the world.
Beyond any doubt he was the most famous person who illustrated the fight against the Apartheid.
He is a historic symbol of peaceful resistance for racial equality and human rights and was South Africa’s first black president (1994­‐1999) and at the same time democratically elected. Even today Nelson Mandela was one of the most respected personalities in the world. He died on the 5th of December 2013.
The exhibition functions as a retrospective look on Mandela’s life, the exceptional journey of a man full of hope and belief. It engages with the visitor’s perception and conscience, but at the same time it also gives the opportunity to discover the universal values of tolerance and equality. The exhibition also enables to discover a jurist synonymous with the principles of justice and equality. It promotes enthusiasm for the good cause, and encourages the masses to do the same. Mandela is considered as a ray of hope for generations of people.
The exhibition focuses on 6 different themes, which illustrate Nelson Mandela’s life, its difficult moments and his personal commitment for which he was awarded the Nobel Peace Price in 1993.
