“Sixty years of totalitarianism and the secret police have left the Czechs scarred. The longer I lived in the country, the more firmly I renounced any leftist idealism I may have had lingering from my university days. Communism is a shocking thing. The more control the state has over your life, the more miserable and frightened your life will be.”
Australian born and Prague-based author Rachael Weiss. Her debut book – ME, MYSELF AND PRAGUE An unreliable guide to Bohemia (of which I have a copy) is reviewed here including contributions from the author.
