    This lavish multilingualism was on Johnson’s mind at a conference last week in Krynica, just inside Poland near the border with Slovakia. The annual gathering (billed as “the Davos of the east”) is a kind of showcase for today’s Europe. The conference, though heavily Polish in attendance, is officially trilingual (English and Russian materials are available everywhere), and even more multilingual in its attendees. A typical panel featured two Hungarians, one Pole, one Czech, one German and one American.
