Ales Bialiatski often writes that he keeps receiving many postcards from various offices of Amnesty International, mainly from Great Britain and the Netherlands. One of his recent letters Ales told of motley fireworks of postcards from Dutch children, who painted his prison days in emotional colors.

“Dear Ales,

Many children made birthday cards for you this weekend. We wish you all the best. Remember: we are thinking of you!” says Marijke Dusseljee of Amnesty Eindhoven.

Ales Bialiatski has received over 40 painted postcards. Each of them is a sincere and emotional reaction of a child’s soul to the story of a man, who sacrificed his freedom for the sake of equality, liberty, justice and respect for everyone.
