Talking Point

As the 11th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution approaches, the Czech Republic's communist past is fading into the distance. Yet, for those who see the wisdom in documenting and studying this period in history, the move of the Czechoslovak Documentation Center from Scheinfeld, Germany to Bohemia is a welcome event. In this week's Talking Point, Linda Mastalir takes a look at the historic transfer of this material once banned by the communists. This time the movement is in one direction only: home to a free Czech Republic, where many of the works housed in the archive were originally written.
