Our goal is to focus on historical dates that can stimulate public dialogue, to offer a venue for the views of interesting personalities, and to remember the past while exploring parallels to the present.
The following speakers have accepted our invitation: Petr Pithart, Tomáš Halík, Alice Koubová, Michael Romancov, Petr Fischer, Ivana Svobodová, Jan Urban či Ladislav Snopko.
Basic questions for our guests:
Do these two events, separated by three quarters of a century, have anything in common with today’s disinformation war?
What patterns of disinformation do they share? What stereotypes do they work with? And how are they expressed by different generations?
Are stereotypes and their identification key to society’s self-defense against media manipulation?
Which easily abused prejudice do you fear most today?
Moderators: Renata Kalenská and Jan Bumba.
