Slavic and Eurasian Film Series: A Trial In Prague (2000)

Tue, March 22, 2011 | GRG 102 Geography building

7:00 PM

This documentary film explores postwar anti-Semitism in Czechoslovakia through the story of the Slánský Trial, a 1952 show trial of 14 communist officials, 11 of whom were identified as “of Jewish origin.”  Through interviews with the families of the defendants, this film is an extraordinary portrait of a generation of young communists, the allure of ideology, and the dangers of political ambitions in Stalinist Eastern Europe.

All movies are free and have English subtitles
