On the other hand, packages of aid that Slovaks collected and carried across the borders to refugees in Budapest and at Vienna’s main station, proves the tide of humanity that washed away the concerns nourished by politicians.
Some Visegrad politicians put themselves in the position of guardians of Christian traditions from Muslim influence. But it is the people, believers and nonbelievers who helped refugees, who have shown what is the very core of this tradition, and thus gave hope to humanity.
Let us hope that the Visegrad region won’t be assessed by the rest of the world through the words of politicians, but rather through the acts of people who offered help when it was needed.
