Academy President Eugen Simion:
I congratulate you for the books that you publish

“When I am before you, I am in a universe of the Book, of the spiritual life. I congratulate you for the books that you publish: form the Dr. Alexandru Safran’s memoirs and Moses Gaster’s correspondence, to Mihail Sebastian’s volumes… In closing, I think of a book whose foreword I wrote recently, authored by a former student of mine, who is present here… You shed light on a very important vein: the contribution of the Jewish personalities to the Romanian culture […]. The Romanian Academy is an institution with a single policy: the policy of science, of culture, of arts. And anyone who is a creator of culture, regardless of his or her ethnical origin, does something good for the Romanian culture.”
