Memorial to the Velvet Revolution

Memorial to the Velvet Revolution

This small plaque was pointed out to me by one of my hosts. It hangs over the exact spot where the first demonstrations began, and shows the date Nov. 17, 1989. Many of the colleagues in Prague remember the day well, and many were there to join in the protest against decades of Communist dictatorship, censorship, and economic hardship.
