Architect Bořek Šípek, the mayor of the Hague, Jozias van Aartsen, and the Czech ambassador to the Netherlands, Dr. Jaroslav Horák, took part in the unveiling of the Václav Havel’s Place, which was preceded by a commemorative event at the Hague’s Old City Hall. The memorial was placed in a park in the artistic quarter of the Hague in a street in front of the Theatre Diligentia. 

To all citizens – appeal

„If, at a given moment, you find it more appropriate to act like Hus, then act like Hus, but if, on the other hand, you feel it’s more effective to act like Švejk, then act like Švejk.“

Václav Havel:
To all citizens – appeal, August 26, 1968

What Price Human Rights?
