Amikejo – An Esperanto State in the Heart of Europe

Amikejo used to be a place of friendship, and in many ways it still is. Today it is known as Kelmis. It lies in the heart of Europe and, at the beginning of the 20th century, was set to become an independent new state amidst Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands. The artificial language Esperanto was to become its official state language. This plan, which is now largely forgotten, was only in operation for a few years and left very few tracks. 100 years later, minet wanted to know how much Esperanto was left in Kelmis.
