Salzburg Festival Opens With Comments On Terrorism

“Austrian President Heinz Fischer warned against the dangers of European values being ‘bombed away’ on Sunday at the opening ceremonies of the Salzburg Festival, the world-famous musical and drama event dedicated to art as a universal value. Touching on the terror attacks over the last few weeks in London and Egypt, Fischer said that a Europe recovering from an earlier horror — the Nazi regime of Adolf Hitler — was ill prepared for the new threat that targets innocents everywhere.”
