JUNACI Z PRACHU/ Scouts Rising form the Dust
Documentary film (dir. Tomas Vitek, 2010, 26min., in Slovak with English subtitles)

A story of persecution of the Scout organization members during the communist regime in Slovakia.

The Scout organization in Czechoslovakia had to rise from ashes three times. It was banned for opposing the totalitarian regimes of the Nazis in 1940-1945, of Communists in 1950-1968 and again from 1970 to 1989. Come share your scout story!
