In this first edition of the PragueCast, we mark the 25th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution – the peaceful overthrow of Communism in Czechoslovakia. How do Czechs remember those momentous events – with fondness or frustration? Should it be a celebration of everything that’s been achieved, or an impetus for further change? And do people born after 1989 care? Take a listen.

Laura Zablit is in the NYU College of Arts and Science and Tisch School of the Arts Class of 2016. Her hometown is San Diego, California.
