Hundreds of people attended the funeral of writer Ludvík Kundera in Brno on Thursday. The poet, playwright and translator died on August 17 at the age of 90. He could not publish after the 1968 Soviet-led invasion of Czechoslovakia and moved to the village of Kunštát, north of Brno. The community’s mayor said a local school has been named in his honour. Ludvík Kundera was a cousin of the French-based author, Milan.
