Books Discovered Once Again
March 31 - May 21, 2016

The exhibition concludes a project of the same name and features history of reserve collections of the National Library of the CR. The books came in the NL´s possession after World War II, when a large number of books were secured on the Czechoslovak territory, some of them confiscated, others dispossessed. Originally they were kept at libraries of different unions, institutions, or private owners. Twelve thousand volumes were selected to be provided with basic evidence and description in order to make them accessible to both professionals and memory institutions. Simultaneously, the archival and historical research was conducted that included also legal problems. The display presents the often complicated and long story of these documents.
