The Tolerance Posters Show inspired and motivated the Friends of Youth Association of Maribor to organize a youth-oriented project in Maribor, Slovenia. On the International Day of Tolerance, the Maribor National Liberation Museum hosted a contest called "100 PEOPLE, 100 WONDERS" for the best slogan and posters to promote tolerance and acceptance of diversity.

765 slogans and 11 posters on the subject of tolerance were submitted to the competition. From these, a committee consisting of Kornelija Kaurin (Association of Friends of Youth Maribor), Uroš Dokl and Jan Malec Svetel (Museum of National Liberation Maribor) and Tanja Cvitko (cultural producer, Idea Box Association), selected the winners. They are currently displayed at the youngsters' exhibition at the Museum of National Liberation Maribor.

We are expressing our gratitude to the young authors of the selected slogans and posters: Timotej Vališer, Lili Makuc, Til Trinkhaus, Ana Kovše, Idol Vrella, Mia Bratkovič, Naja Prelog, Maja Frangež, Valentina Dobaj, Mihael Kajdič, Zala Smogavec, Larisa Zašler. We also extend our appreciation to youngsters' teachers who allowed them to explore their creativity: Anka Jemenšek, Željka Premzl, Jolanda Lep, Bronja Jarc, Katja Emeršič, Simona Tement.

The prizes for the young authors were donated by the Sonček Tourist Agency, Narodni dom Maribor and Litera Publishing House. We thank them!

On November 24th, we had the opening of the Tolerance Poster Show in the Ximen Red House in Taipei. The Red House is a historical building that has over 500 visitors per day.   The Tolerance Poster Show takes place alongside the Taiwan International Student Design Competition Award Ceremony.

2nd Tolerance Posters Show in Zagreb, Croatia

On November 16th, the International Day of Tolerance , the Tolerance Poster Show was displayed in the center of Zagreb on the fence of the Botanical Garden . Here is a link to a short video of the show . Unfortunately only 24 hours later, the show was "attacked" by Neo-Nazis graffitis. On the posters, they wrote "NDH", which is the abbreviation for Nezavisna Država Hrvatska (Independent State of Croatia) a Second World War puppet state of Nazi Germany. On others, they graffitied the letter "U" which is the symbol for Ustaša the Second World War Croatian fascist organization. And they even wrote "Smrt Srbozločincima" (Death to the Serbian criminals). Luckily, the organizers of the show figured out how to remove this hate speech and the symbols. Outrage over this vandalism, was expressed through all news media in Croatia. Here , here , here , and here are some of the local media reactions. You can see the video of the show here . This show
