Jiří Šlajsna: The Vanished Settlements of the Ústí Region

When
8 September 2015

The subject of the lecture is the landscape of northwest Bohemia and its transformation, related to the industrial, demographic, and political changes in the course of the 20th century. The impacts of mining, energy and hydro- industry or the influence of social changes which caused frequent disappearance of settlements across the entire Ústí region. Several examples will be given of towns and villages which lost the "battle for better future". The lecture will also include a short presentation of an older museum exposition dedicated to the "Vanished Settlements of the Most Area", delivered by its curator Eva Hladká.
