Whiff of spring brings an urge to get rid of unnecessary. Search through the wardrobe, clean the house. Although we abandon unnecessary things, we can find comfort in the feeling of renewal. The material aspect can pull us more than we want to admit. Do you remember the last time you lost something valuable and finally have realized that you don’t even need it?

We can also understand Lost and Found in other than material way. In this hurried times we can quickly change our minds without listening to the counterparty. Increasingly we lose our values, we flee to a rapid conclusion, radical opinions and we find sanctuary in uncritical condemnation.

When we get something, we lose something. Maybe not now, maybe not all at once. We lose ourselves, we lose others, new people come into our lives, we find ourselves. This year we invite you to TEDxBratislava 2017 to gain new insights into the obvious things and also lose prejudices. We will see you on July 2, 2017 in a new building Slovak National Theatre.

Eva Mosnáková

Narodila sa v roku 1929 v Brne. Jej otec pochádzal z židovskej meštianskej rodiny, mama z remeselnícko-roľníckej českej rodiny. Po potlačení SNP sa s rodičmi skrývala na majeri Laciház u statočných manželov Konrádovcov. Po obsadení Slovenska Nemcami jej rodina bola ohrozená pre židovský pôvod. Dramatické udalosti nastali, keď do Močenku prišiel hľadať ukrytých Židov SS-man Zimmermann z koncentračného tábora v Seredi. Rodina musela opustiť bezpečný úkryt na Laciházi.Obetavo sa o nich staral brat manželky ich záchrancu. Ten sa stal po vojne jej manželom. Aj v povojnových rokoch bol jej život poznačený novou diktatúrou. Manžel bol nespravodlivo odsúdený do uránových baní v Jáchymove. Jej osud bol tak výrazne poznačený pomocou ušľachtilých, statočných ľudí, ktorí ju inšpirujú, aby sa - ako protiklad k nenávistným prejavom, chamtivosti a lžiam- stavala na stranu slušnosti, pomoci iným bez nároku na odmenu, na stranu pravdy a humanity.
