In the 34th Open Day at the Central Office of UEA (international Esperanto organisation) on the 14th of May 2011, Dr Věra Barandovská-Frank gave a lecture about the great humanist Erasmus of Rotterdam (see article about Erasmus in Wikipedia). The theme of the Open Day was chosen in honour of the 500th anniversary of Erasmus's famous work, The Praise of Folly (1509). An Esperanto edition of the work, translated by Gerrit Bervelling, a well known Esperantist, was published in 1988.

The lecture can now be viewed in three parts in UEA's Reta Kinejo (Net Cinema).
