Remembering the Communist Regime: Czech Memorial Sites

About the project

The website was created under the project No. DF11P01OVV034 funded by the Ministry of Culture within the National and cultural identity programme (NAKI). It is being further developed with the support of the Czech Academy of Sciences within the Strategy AV21 research programmes.
The website presents monuments, memorials, memorial plaques crosses, inscriptions, etc. that have been unveiled from November 1989 to November 2019. It captures the process of the formation of memory of communism in Czech public space during the three decades since the fall of the communist regime. To show their communication, about forty memorial sites from the communist era are also included.

More coming soon.
