    Re: nationalities

    The second one. The first would be OK with 'people from all nations'.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer

    Re: nationalities

    I suppose so, but the alternatives suggested above are better.

    Note that I deleted the full stop (period) after 'shows' in your question.
