„This corner stone of freedom presented June 17, 1948 at Bredford, Indiana, USA, the stone city of the world. AUSTRIA. Austria’s importance for western civilisation transcends by far the geographical size of the country. Her contributions in the fields of music, art and literature, her achievements in medicine and the natural sciences are widely known. Austrian inventors have contributed decisively to the development of technical science. Indeed, Austria may be regarded as the heart of European Commonwealth.
