Samizdat

r_2100x1400_radio_praha.png

In modern European history, Samizdat - the writing, printing and distribution of literature that was suppressed and banned by the censors during Communism - represented a mass struggle for freedom that was often punished with years of imprisonment and even death. A major exhibition documenting this struggle is currently being held at the National Museum in Prague. In this week's Central Europe Today, Dita Asiedu looks at the underground press movement and examines how much the younger generation knows about it today.
