Proverbs reflect the spirit of the people. The Moldovan people has accumulated numerous proverbs about bread. Reading them, one understands the values of the people and their history-long struggle for a better life. When bread is mentioned in a proverb, there is always a deeper meaning guiding one towards better behaviour and attitudes.
Neva Klaić, professor at the U3A University Zagreb organised a translation workshop for the students. The task was to translate proverbs concerning bread, herbs or wine from Croatian into English.
