Tomáš Bouška Guest of BBC Memory Wars
Tomáš Bouška participated on the first part of the BBC World Service Memory Wars series. In this radio documentary Alan Dein explores how sometimes this oral history collides with the official version committed to the history books – particularly in nations where the outcome is still bitterly contested. The first part was called Ghosts of Europe and dealt with recent past of Russia, Czechoslovakia, Italy and Albania. Often crucial in all these projects has been the training and empowerment of local voices, not just professional oral historians, to gather intimate and sometimes disturbing stories within their own communities.
You can listen to the documentary in the website of BBC World Service.
