Devotees of numerology might suggest that the number 40 counts for something. It certainly makes its mark on Judeo-Christian thinking. The Israelites wandered for 40 years in Sinai, and Moses fasted for 40 days. Not quite so momentous, but the next issue of hidden europe, published on 15 July, will be our fortieth.
hidden europe 40 will include a feature on Istria by Rudolf Abraham. Paul Scraton will introduce us to a very special part of Sweden. And we shall venture out into the forests of rural Brandenburg to visit the graves of Sylhet mariners and see the site of Germany’s first mosque.
