18/12/2011—HONORING THE MEMORY OF VÁCLAV HAVEL

The death of for­mer Czechoslovak and Czech President Václav Havel entails the pass­ing of a great politi­cian and moral author­ity. The almost fairytale-like story when the power of the pow­er­less removed the com­mu­nist dic­ta­tor­ship in the cen­ter of Europe is very closely con­nected with his life.

His vision of Central Europe led him and his friends from Central European dis­si­dent cir­cles, who came into power by the end of the 1980s, to the idea of estab­lish­ing closer ties among the new democ­ra­cies to deal with the bur­den­some her­itage of the com­mu­nist regimes. The embod­i­ment of this effort, the Visegrad Group, came into exis­tence in 1991.

The Visegrad Group is a con­cept that Václav Havel sup­ported and advo­cated inten­sively. The results attained by the Visegrad Group dur­ing its twenty-year exis­tence have con­firmed the fore­sight of this con­cept. We have lost a real Homo viseg­radi­cus, please join us in hon­or­ing his memory.
