Witness to the Revolution: Accounts from Americans who were there
As communism fell in Europe in the fall and winter of 1989, several Americans were in Czechoslovakia and had the opportunity to witness a pivotal moment in history. This travelling photography exhibition by the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library uses eye witness accounts from Americans who were there, including a professor, a student, a reporter and U.S. Embassy staff. Their notes, pictures and videos combine to tell a fascinating story of revolution and freedom.
