The protest movements of 1968 were ignited all over the world – the existing order underwent a dramatic upheaval. Students and pupils of the entire world – no matter in which country, which culture – expressed their solidarity. And what they accomplished was great! The revolutions and achievements of this movement have changed the whole world. And it remains doubtful if there will ever be another “1968“!
