Ladislav Feierabend managed the impossible: he was a member of the war-time Protectorate government and at the same time head of a resistance group in contact with Edvard Beneš in London. So when a messenger was captured and forced to reveal everything, in January 1940 Feierabend embarked on an escape worthy of a Hollywood blockbuster. He eventually joined Beneš’s government-in-exile as finance minister before returning to Prague in 1945. After the communist coup in February 1948, Feierabend went into hiding until April when he was smuggled out of his homeland again, this time with his family. His daughter, Hana Ludikar, will share the remarkable details of this story with us. Bring your friends with you to enjoy this rare opportunity.

Free admission for members of the BCSA, £10 for non-members, full-time students £5.
