Particular events

  • in November 2008 there was a common project of the „Human in Distress“ company and history seminar called Communistic Czechoslovakia.
  • in March 2009 a students‘ conference called Czechoslovakia and Ostrava in the times of normalization took place at school. It was sponsored by Mayor Petr Kajnar.

The first day was opened by our headmistress Dagmar Juchelková. It was followed by by the film „Neznámý host“ (1969) by Vlastimil Venclík, which initiated discussion about the normalization and next presentation led by Jiří Sovadina, PhD. After the break all the participants were split into two groups and worked in workshops. Each workshop worked with period documents and music. After lunch some significant personalities from the underground participated.

The second day was linked to the first one by the film of the series "30 případů majora Zemana". The film was followed by a lively discussion on the topic. The most frequently discussed topics were every-day life in the period of normalization, persecution , and Charter 77.
