A new outdoor exhibition devoted to the first post-First World War years is coming to Prague between 15 Oct and 12 Nov. 

 
The First World War completely changed East-Central Europe. Upon the ruins of four old empires, a dozen or so new countries appeared and almost all borders were redrawn, often in course of continued military conflicts, which lasted even until 1923. After having suffered very high losses, the region started rebuilding and modernising efforts. A New Europe was established.

The new outdoor travelling exhibition created by the ENRS focuses on these turbulent years. Over 200 archive and multimedia materials – pictures, maps and films together with individual stories of people who lived back in these times – present a complex yet coherent picture of New Europe established in Central-East part of the continent after the Great War.

The tour of the exhibition starts in Prague on 15 October. The display will be on view at Park Indíry Gándhíové (Praha 6, corner PIG and Technická) till 12 November, and in other European cities later this year and the following year.


Official opening will take place on 15 October at 15:00. Entrance is free. 

The opening will be attended by: 

  • Prof. Piotr Gliński, the First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Culture and National Heritage of Poland
  • H.E. Mr Peter Weiss, Ambassador of the Slovak Republic to the Czech Republic
  • H.E. Mr Edvilas Raudonikis, Ambassador of the Republic of Lithuania to the Czech Republic 
  • H.E. Ms Carmen-Liliana Burlacu, Ambassador of Romania to the Czech Republic
  • Mr Ondrej Kolář, Mayor of Municipal District Prague 6
  • Prof. Jiří Máca, Dean of the Faculty of Civil Engineering at the Czech Technical University


Moreover, a debate contrasting national perspectives on remembrance of the post-First World War years will be held at the Vaclav Havel Library on 15 October at 19:00. Speakers include: Prof. Rasa Balockaite (Lithuania), Prof. Attila Pok (Hungary), Prof. Jan Rydel (Poland), Dr Oldřich Tůma (Czech Republic), with Michael Žantovský (Czech Republic, director of the Vaclav Havel Library) as the moderator.
