Exhibition Protectorate, Resistance and Collaboration shows one of the most complicated period of Czech history of the 20th century. It tells two different, but interrelated stories.
The first one tells about the beginnings of the extreme right-wing movement in Czechoslovakia, it captures the most important collaborating organizations and their major leaders (e.g., Emanuel Moravec, František Teuner), who have become symbols of this era.
The second story is devoted to internal resistance and representatives of organizations and groups (Obrana národa- Nation´s Defense, the illegal Communist Party, Sokol resistance, Petiční výbor Věrni zůstaneme - Committee of the Petition “We Remain Faithful”, ÚVOD - Central Leadership of Home Resistance, etc.) that involved in the resistance.
Both stories from the period of the Protectorate interlocked in the 1950th, when the representatives of resistance and Czech collaboration met in the communist prisons.
