A Walk through Occupied Brno 1968–69

Wednesday / 06. 06. 2018
sraz u kašny na náměstí Svobody

16:00

Authors of historical guides through Brno, Michal Konečný and Alexandr Brummer, will lead you through the events and phenomena of the years 1968-1969 on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the August occupation. During the walk they will recall the places connected with the Prague Spring and the social liberalization, the arrival and stay of the Soviet troops and the creeping rise of ‘normalization’, as it was called in the 1970’s. Where did innocent people die in August 1968 and 1969? How did the occupation change the face of the city? And where did demonstrations take place in the centre of Brno?
