Václav Havel Library


Václav Havel Library review Rate it

The newest location for this library, an evolving project established in 2004, gives it proper prominence and offers the best public access set up thus far to the journals, photos, memoirs and letters of one of the Cold War's most important forces for dissidence and human rights. The former playwright president's humility, his passion for the underdog, his wry humour and his reputation for being persnickety all emerge from this well curated exhibition. Havel's awareness of the historical importance of his cause resulted in a strategic approach to his speeches and journals; his endeavours to address every topic related to that struggle can overwhelm, but are uniquely complete and often moving.
