Zürich liest: Pavel Kohout

Moderation: Tomáš Glanc (Slavic seminar, university of Zurich)

The Czech author Pavel Kohout witnessed first-hand much of Europe’s recent history, and influenced it both from a literary and a political perspective: as a young man, he was a convinced Communist and the most-per-formed playwright in the ČSSR – but later on in life, he became one of the spokesmen of the Prague Spring and was sent into exile from his country as a dissident. In his Diaries of a European, he re-examines such decisive political events and describes the never-ending struggle between freedom and democracy.
