Under a Cruel Star
A Life in Prague 1941-1968
by Heda Margolius Kovaly
Thursday 31 May, 7.30pm
Heda writes about her imprisonment by the Nazis during WWII and her persecution by the Communists in the 1950s. She writes about meeting her husband Rudolf Margolius who along with 13 other government officials was tried and 11 of those hanged in one of the era’s most notorious show trials.
We will be showing the documentary “Hitler, Stalin and I” which complements her book. The documentary will be followed by a discussion with Heda’s son, Ivan Margolius. Her book will be available for sale.
