Czech Republic: A Message to Condoleezza Rice

Categories: Eastern & Central Europe, North America, Czech Republic, U.S.A., History, International Relations, Politics, Travel


On one wall in Brno [2], 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 [3]:

Dear Madam the minister,

Please do not forget your slave origins.
They got their freedom.
Let freedom and peace to other people.

Brno people.
