Stay Strong! Letters from Prison
- Where: Václav Havel Library, Ostrovní 13, Prague 110 00
- When: November 4, 2019, 19:00 – 21:00
“The letters present two individuals joined by a stale romance but also considerable life experience. They capture attempts to maintain freedom of speech but also fear of the censorship that would hold back messages for the other person. They reveal the hardship that the married couple, civically engaged individuals, had to face during normalisation.”
Vydržať! Dopisy z vězení (Stay Strong! Letters from Prison), a book of correspondence between Jaromír Šavrda and his wife Dolores between 1978 and 1984, will be introduced by Jiří Gruntorád, Iva Málková and Jiří Fiedor. Markéta and Roman Polách will read excerpts while video interviews with Dolores Šavrdová will be screened.
Organised by the Václav Havel Library in cooperation with the Pulchra publishing house.
