Acting CHF director Mirjana Ana-Maria Piskulić took the opportunity to present an award to Dr Adolf Polegubić for his brilliant study on The Pastoral Care of Croatians in Germany. The award is conferred on the basis of a unanimous decision by an evaluation commission in the Croatian Books Abroad project for exceptional achievement in cultural work.

The round table was accompanied by an exhibition of books by Croatian authors from fifty-five countries that are home to people of Croatian descent and from the indigenous Croatian minority communities in neighbouring countries.
