a Dream that Goes on
What does the name Esperanto mean? It means “the hopeful”, and we all have a right to hope. The language was born from the dream of a kid, in the pogrom-ridden Belarus at the end of the Nineteenth Century. In his hometown people of different ethnic groups did not understand each other, with reciprocal hate. Therefore, little Ludoviko Zamehof had the idea that as a grown-up he would invent a language, with which everybody could
talk on the same level, melting down with the greater understanding all stereotypes and fears. Today his neutral language is spoken in the whole world, by people of different classes, religions and ethnical backgrounds, who cooperate to get slowly closer to the dream of greater respect and justice for humanity.
