A memorial dedicated to the late Václav Havel was unveiled in Prague’s Maltézské square on May Day. The memorial –a seating area comprised of a circular table and two wooden seats is a symbolic invitation for reflection and debate on the former president’s legacy. At the dedication ceremony Mr. Havel’s close friend, and his one-time chancellor at Prague Castle, Karel Schwarzenberg said that today, when the centre-left government had traded human rights for business deals in China, it was more important than ever to reflect on Vaclav Havel’s principles. Similar memorials have been unveiled in Georgetown, US, and Dublin, Ireland.
