The Velvet Revolution After Thirty Years
- Where: Václav Havel Library, Ostrovní 13, Prague 110 00
- When: October 30, 2019, 17:00 – 19:00
Daniel Kroupa, Monika MacDonagh-Pajerová, Jolyon Naegele and Jan Sokol will return in conversations with Olga Sommerová and Petr Placák to the events of the Velvet Revolution. The focus will not be on the recollections of direct participants but on the recent history and values that have formed us and continue to do so.
Via interviews and rich accompanying photographs we will follow the path to the Velvet Revolution and the dramatic events at the end of 1989, and also consider what the change brought us and what kind of world we are creating together.
Well-known names representing various generations, professions and opinions will present a multi-dimensional overview of our lived history and the responsibility we bear toward them and future generations.
Chaired by Jáchym Topol.
Organised by the Václav Havel Library in cooperation with the Karolinum publishing house.
