August ´68 Occupation and Civil Resistance in Slovakia in Photo Documents from the Archives of the Nation´s Memory Institute

In an effort to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the occupation of Czechoslovakia on August 20, 1968 by the military forces of the Warsaw Pact, the Nation´s Memory Institute has published a monography compiled of authentic iconographic documents. The documents are obscure genuine photographs as well as documentation from the Institute´s Archives and they document the moments of the invasion.
One of the reasons that led the Institute to publish the monography was an existing, rather simplified visual perception of the occupation. The notion of the occupation in Slovakia has been familiarized with the rich and dramatic visual material originating in Prague, but much less with the footing from Bratislava, with perhaps the most well-known collection of photographs from the centre of Bratislava shot by a photo reporter Ladislav Bielik who later had to face communist persecution. For this reason, the publication charted a different course and aims to present the infamous August days of 1968 as the inhabitants of various Slovak regions viewed them. Besides the authenticity of the mentioned photographs and documents their major "added value" is their origin.
The publication has been written in a popular scientific style and the intent is to address the widest possible range of people, especially the younger generation who did not witness these events firsthand.
The publication is published both in Slovak and English.
