Oh, Europe

Episode 4: Let there be light

Epidemics, hunger and war bring suffering and deprivation to Europe; they shake the very core of the Christian Western World. But these disasters bring the Europeans closer together; everyone is suffering the same fate. Is Europe a community with a shared destiny? The crisis inspires the spirit. Unforgettable works of literature and art are produced.
