Memorial of Vasil Biľak: Did the Truth Really Remained Truth?

   | Nov 26, 2015


The paper deals with the memorial of Vasil Biľak that was unveiled in Krajná Bystrá in Eastern Slovakia in February 2015. However, Vasil Biľak was considered as a very negative figure for his participation at the Warsaw Pact occupation in 1968. The paper points out some gaps in the remembrance policy in Slovakia after the fall of communism and also some inconsistency that accompanied the process of the coming to terms with the totalitarian history of Slovakia.
