Securitas Imperii 39/2021

In 2021 the KSČM (Communist Party of Bohemia and Moravia), the heir to once‑powerful KSČ (Communist Party of Czechoslovakia), failed to reach a quorum and for the first time since the Velvet Revolution will not be represented in the parliament. Many are rejoicing that the era of the party’s power is finally over and the post‑Cold War development came to its conclusion. However, the Communist Party influenced the lives of people in Czechoslovakia and then in the Czech Republic for one hundred years. The centenary of the founding of the KSČ provides an opportunity to look back at how the Communist Party was established, seized and maintained its power, and eventually lost its position. This thematic volume comes out loosely from the international conference dedicated to the centenary of the founding of KSČ held on 13 and 19–21 May 2021 in Prague (see https://100letksc.cz/en/). The conference was organized jointly by the Institute for the Research of Totalitarian Regimes and the Institute for the Contemporary History of the Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague. All presentations are accessible on the YouTube channel.
