HISTORY OF THE SHERLOCKIAN SITE
Achievements we are proud of
On this site we would like to list the results that we are proud of. The primary reason of our pride is that we achieved them through hard and tenacious work. Secondly, our efforts were supported by artists, authors and university professors, who granted their permissions to publish their works on our site. They are esteemed people who are successful and prominently talented at their own professions. With their support at the same time they acknowledged our work and results.
Please select a year:
We can document everything. What we share here is the truth. And as Goethe said: „Love of truth shows itself in this, that a man knows how to find and value the good in everything.”
Ronald Reagan once remarked:” We have to achieve important things. [-] All we have to do is believe that we can do better.”
We hope that int he future we will meet more kind and wise people who help us on our long way.
