  • Where: Václav Havel Library, Ostrovní 13, Prague 110 00
  • When: March 28, 2017, 19:00 – 21:00

Meeting with the winners of this year’s prestigious Ferdinand Peroutka Prize: the creator of the TV show Historie.cs, Vladimír Kučera, and Petr Honzejk, a commentator with Hospodářské noviny. Alongside Petr Pithart, a former Czech prime minister and long-time chairman of the Czech Senate, and Pavel Fischer, a former Czech ambassador to France, the two winners will discuss the present and possible future of print media.

It is often said today that print is on the wane and has no future. But what will replace it? And what path do print outlets need to follow if they are to continue to fulfil their role in society?

Evening chaired by Petr Fischer and co-organised by the Ferdinand Peroutka Society.

Letters to Olga – essays written in prison, letter

„If I consider the problem as that which the world is turning me into – that is, as a tiny screw in a giant machine, deprived of human identity – then there is really nothing I can do. Obviously I cannot put a stop to the destruction of the globe, the growing stupidity of nations and the repoduction of thousands of new thermonuclear bombs. If, however, I consider it as that which each of us originally is, or rahter what each of us – irrespective of the state of the world – has the basic potential to become, which is to say an autonomous human being, capable of acting responsibly to and for the world, then of course there is a great deal I can do.“
