On one wall in Brno, the second-largest Czech city, there's a collective letter to U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. When Swobodin v Brne discovered it, he asked a friend to do an English translation of the text that appears next to Ms. Rice's portrait and a reproduction of a painting of African slaves:
Dear Madam the minister,
Please do not forget your slave origins.
They got their freedom.
Let freedom and peace to other people.
