About

The years in between normalization and revolution in Czechoslovakia are often known as the "Era of Forgetting." People wanted to live as normally as they could after the power of the Soviet Union destroyed their will to fight, so for twenty years, they did. The country may have forgotten morals and truth, but those brave voices that spoke out in Charter 77 and in November of 1989 reinstated this lost humanity. Through protests, leaders, and risks, people evolved so that when communism did fall, Czechoslovakia was once again living in truth. This website seeks to display the Velvet Revolution in its visual form, as there are many images which depict not only the revolution itself, but the leaders and nameless individuals who participated.
