‘The delegates at work’ from La Gazette de Lausanne (10 December 1949)

On 10 December 1949, the Gazette de Lausanne describes the work of the European Conference on Culture. It summarises, in particular, the addresses given by Duncan Stephen, British poet, on the need for an independent European culture and by the Swiss conductor, Ernest Ansermet, on the importance of a shared European consciousness. The newspaper emphasises, however, that the conference must propose tangible cultural plans. It also includes three portraits of European figures: Duncan Sandys, Elisabeth Bowen and Carlo Schmid.
