Michael Žantovský: "The lesson of Vaclav Havel during the pandemic"

An interview with the biographer of the Velvet Revolution's leader

Micheal Žantovský is the official biographer of Vaclav Havel and the director of the Prague's Vaclav Havel Library. But, first of all, Michael was one of the closest friends of the former President of the Czech Republic, honored at the Garden of Milan as Righteous. We talked with him about Havel's heritage during the complex age we are living today.
