Prague 4 prepared another exhibition. It can be seen in the premises of the municipal district office and is dedicated to the events of November 1989.
“This exhibition for November 17 is a traditional exhibition, we commemorate these important events every year, for me personally November 17 is the symbolic date when we calculate the fall of the communist regime, even though the sequence of events was wider and more complex. Information about those texts that they are listed here, they are from the historical institute, a large part comes from the database of our press spokesman, Mr. Bigas,” said Ondřej Kubín (ODS), mayor of Prague 4.
People can remember the events surrounding the Velvet Revolution through dozens of panels. You can see both period photographs and texts on them.
“November 17, 1989, i.e. the Velvet Revolution, is a major milestone in our history and the path to democracy, it marked the end of the forty-year oppression of the Communist Party, STB and the Soviet Union. It is very important to remember this historical moment even today, together with their main participants, and for the reason that truth and love will always win,” said Petr Tomáš Opletal (TOP 09), councilor of the Prague 4 municipal council.
The exhibition will be on display in the Prague 4 municipal office until November 28.
