Photos by Josef Koudelka on display at Prague’s Old Town Hall

The Old Town Hall in Prague has launched an exhibition of photographs by famous Czech photographer Josef Koudelka. The exhibition, entitled Josef Koudleka – Invasion 68 commemorates the 40th anniversary of 21 August 1968 – the day of the Soviet-led invasion of Czechoslovakia. Many of the exhibited photos have not been published yet; the snapshots were secretly transported to the West and Koudelka acknowledged his authorship as late as in 1984.
