Shoah in Czech radio play

Tuesday 27 February at 6 pm

Exactly one month ago, we commemorated Holocaust Remembrance Day and the prevention of crimes against humanity. In the wake of that day, we present a lecture by radio columnist Mgr. Přemysl Hnilicka. He will take us through the history of radio drama and present examples of how and when Czech artists dealt with the topic of the Holocaust - and when this topic was not allowed. There will be excerpts from plays by Ludvík Aškenazy, Arnošt Lustig, Jaromír Ptáček, as well as representatives of the younger generation. It will offer a broader insight into this area with the promise of a possible treatment of "Moravian Jewish stories", which we want to focus on in particular. Admission is voluntary.
