In 1945, Romain Gary published L’Education européenne, his first in a long series of novels that attest to his passionate love for a Europe that is constantly falling apart. It is the Europe of the Enlightenment, of the universal values of Liberty, Equality, of faith in Intelligence. It is this imperfect fraternity, the Europe of soldiers in the trenches, of artists and thinkers, of our most beautiful achievements as men and women seeking to build the utopia of a peaceful, united, and free continent.
