Description: Since the beginning of 2002 a new grant project has begun. This project focuses on the political elites and dissidents in the period of Normalization (1969 - 1989), and it is supported by the Grant Agency of the Czech Republic. The aim of the project is to conduct, assemble, sort, and preserve interviews and the biographies of people who made their mark during the Communist era, with a focus on the last ten years of the régime and its fall, either on the side of the establishment or on the side of the ideological and political opposition. The obtaining of these testimonies are, in view of the age of the persons who will be providing testimony and in view of the psychologically conditioned characteristics of the individual memory, a task whose postponement would make extremely difficult, if not impossible, its realization.
