Diary entry for 26 April 2005, To the Castle and Back

„When such events happen, there is inevitably a call for the further homogenization of society,; we get rid of the Jews, then Germans, the bourgeoisie, then dissidents, then Slovaks – and who will be next in line? The Roma? Homosexuals? All foreigners? And who will be left? Pure-blooded little Czechs in their own little garden. It’s not just that such a position or, ultimately, such a policy is immoral, it’s also suicidal.“
