“I don´t remember exactly what I was doing on November 17th, 1989. However, I remember the days afterward…”


“…when there were scenes on TV from the demonstrations showing the intervention of the police using water cannons and sticks against the demonstrators.”


“Once, when I´m going to talk about this with my children, I will tell them that freedom is not automatic and we wouldn´t have it without the courage of many people. And that we constantly must strive and fight for it. We have to be courageous and not be afraid even when it seems as if the majority was against.” Ivan, November 2019
