Trouble in the heart of Europe: Prof. Marek Chodakiewicz comments

Transitioning out of communism to democracy was never easy in Central and Eastern Europe. In many ways, the process is still incomplete, facing many obstacles and, sometimes, also suffering setbacks.

One of these was the recent firing of the director of the Institute for the Study of Totalitarian Regimes–the Czech Republic’s prime body for documenting and prosecuting German and communist crimes–under the pressure of post-communists and their liberal and socialist allies.

The effort to sweep communist atrocities and inequities under the rug, which drives these post-communist forces, is described by Prof. Marek Jan Chodakiewicz in his latest article for the Selous Foundation for Public Policy Research (SFPPR) News & Analysis section.
