A Czechoslovak secret police operation against selected social groups in documents and recollections.
Immediately after seizing power the Communist regime began to settle accounts with its enemies and social groups it regarded as a threat. The church, private farmers, organizations like the Junák scouts and Sokol and many others became the target of large-scale, systematic repression.
This documentary-based evening with excerpts from memoires, investigators’ reports and other period documents has been prepared by the Museum of the 20 th Century. The debate will take place within the 15 th edition of the Mene Tekel festival against totalitarianism in cooperation with the Václav Havel Library.
Guests: Jan Kalous, Petr Blažek, David Svoboda, Veronika Bendová
