Smol'e - 1995-1998

Impressions from 1995-1997

Here are pictures of how it all began: the first house, the building of the assembly and meeting house, the first camps, summer schools and Ruhi seminars.

Smol'e - a dream

Hello, dear friends! Smol'e is a very special place. Unfortunately we don't know much of its history. But we have met wonderful people, our neighbors, who have lived there and in the surrounding areas for generations.

The nature is very special also, it attracts the body and the soul and gives peace, tranquility and reverence for the divine.

The summer breaks in Belarus last 3 months. Enough time to go wild on the Datsha. Jana, Janis and the neighbors' grandchildren undertook a lot of things together: they built tree houses and rafts, recorded a broadcasting for the radio, directed a film and played in it... The idea for the film came from Helmut's story of his father who was here during the war.

Just look at the pictures and make an impression yourself. You'll want to visit the place!

Impressions from 1998

Here are some pictures of our animals and the work in the garden, of the first days of the "One World" dance workshop and many more schools. You'll meet friends from Germany who have come to support the projects. We are thankful for all the support and the knowledge we gained through the cultural exchange.

Belarus, for decades our homeland

Our family left a big part of our heart in Belarus. For many years this beautiful country used to be our home, many special moments have shaped us, the desire to share good with the people gave us joy.

The earth is but one country, and mankind its citizens

The words of Bahà'u'llàh "The earth is but one country, and mankind its citizens" have shaped us. The time and the world situation are constantly changing, more and more we see that tolerance and understanding for each other become essential parts of our lives. Serving the Baha'i Faith in Belarus helped us understand Bahà'u'llàh's teachings and implement them in our lives.
