Waldorf schools worldwide are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the opening of the first Waldorf school. In two lectures, Eugene Schwartz focuses on the words and deeds of Rudolf Steiner in the context of the artistic, political, pedagogical, and scientific developments of that time. We will reflect on the relationship of the chaos and courage so inextricably woven into the events of the year 1919 to our lives and tasks in 2019.
