The 1950s represent one particular decade in the history of this country. The decade of the beginning of the communist dictatorship, which fundamentally changed the whole nature of society. A decade of persecution, trials, victims, and the Iron Curtain, but also a decade of enthusiasm, youth, building and faith in a new and better world. However, it was to be built at the cost of lack of freedom. The then Czechoslovakia underwent perhaps the most significant social changes of the last century. These changes affected its social structure, economy, culture, politics, and foreign policy. Our book and exhibition aim to illustrate all this and hopefully contribute to the understanding of the period between 1948 and 1960.
