Saturday, November 12, the first episode will be broadcast on
part of the international section of Czech Radio.
The stories, inspired by true experiences of their ancestors, were written by children aged 10-18 who live in the Czech Republic. Over the next month, there will be a series of episodes about how the ancestors were affected by the traumatic history of the 20th century.
The stories were recorded by David Vaughan with the children. They explore themes of normalization in Czech villages in the 1950s, the horrors of poverty, emigration during WWII and the Cold War, and much more.
