Responses to the programme:
Through documentary films we want to draw young people’s attention to thinking about the values of an open, tolerant and democratic society, to help them in seeking connections and forming their own opinions, and to also help them develop their social, cultural and historical knowledge.
Karel Strachota, programme director
A specific “profound human story” dealt with in the form of a documentary film can make a much bigger impression than hundreds of words.

After seeing the films I want to know more things and I’m not indifferent to what goes on around me. I read more books, I look things up on the internet and I read newspapers.
Martin Metelka, a 7th-grade pupil of primary school 21 in Plzeň
I think the Stories of Injustice project is a very suitable way of acquainting pupils with a sad period of Czechoslovak history. At a talk we held, we had an historian who was himself persecuted during the normalisation era, and a lively discussion is definitely more impressive than historical explanations. I look forward to further cooperation.
