Dedicate Archive Materials to the Václav Havel Library

It is our endeavour to build up a complete archive of the works and creations coming from the pen of Václav Havel or documents concerning him. This is highly difficult work given that the current owners of many documents are unknown. If you or anybody from your environs is the owner of original texts, correspondence, photographs, speeches or any other works by Václav Havel and you would like to dedicate a copy or the original to the Václav Havel Library, you can contact us. All of these materials have a historical value for us.

Whenever a copy or original is donated to the Václav Havel Library, we will always negotiate the donation conditions with the owner. All of the donors or owners will always be listed in relation to the documentary material.

To all citizens – appeal

„If, at a given moment, you find it more appropriate to act like Hus, then act like Hus, but if, on the other hand, you feel it’s more effective to act like Švejk, then act like Švejk.“

Václav Havel:
To all citizens – appeal, August 26, 1968
