On February 11, 2004 Baha'i World News Service reported, "An exhibition on social harmony at the main building of the European Parliament was officially inaugurated at a reception [in Strasbourg, France] on 10 February. Titled 'The Baha'i International Community: Promoting Unity in Diversity throughout Europe for over a Century,' the display will grace the first floor gallery of the Winston Churchill Building until 12 February 2004. More than 150 people -- including some 30 members of the Parliament -- attended the reception, which featured an address by Baroness Sarah Ludford, a member of the European Parliament from the United Kingdom who sponsored the exhibition. There are well-established Baha'i communities -- headed by national-level governing councils -- in all 15 member nations of the European Union, as well as in the ten acceding nations."
