Czech Consul General in Los Angeles criticises "anti-Czechoslovak book"

29. 10. 2009

In his speech at the reception celebrating the National Day of the Czech Republic in Los Angeles yesterday, the Consul General of the Czech Republic, Daniel Kumermann, strongly criticized Britské listy, and namely its editor, Jan Čulík, for publishing positive reviews of Mary Heimann's book "Czechoslovakia: The State that Failed". He said, with reference to the founding of Czechoslovakia, that "calling it a mistake is only one step away from calling it a crime against humanity". In his 5 minute-long speech for the representatives of the Los Angeles city, county, and Czech citizens living in the area (maybe some foreign diplomats as well), he spent the first two minutes dissing Britské listy for being anti-Czech, anti-American, etc.).
