About Liechtenstein-Czech Relations...

The day before yesterday, the Liechtenstein-Czech historical commission in collaboration with the Historical Society for the Principality of Liechtenstein presented two new books. Among the guests for the book presentation in Vaduz was Hereditary Prince Alois.

The first book entitled "Liechtensteinisch-tschechische Beziehungen in Geschichte und Gegenwart, Synthesebericht der Liechtensteinisch-Tschechischen Historikerkommission" (Liechtenstein-Czech relation in history and presence, synthesis report of the Liechtenstein-Czech historical commission) was written by eight historians as a final report about the relation of Liechtenstein and the Czech Republic after three years of work. As you may recall, the Prince of Liechtenstein as well as 37 other Liechtenstein citizens lost their Czechoslovakian properties on the basis of the Beneš decrees after the end of the Second World War as they were deemed German because of speaking German. Only in 2009, the Czech Republic and Liechtenstein formed official diplomatic relations and a year later a historical commission was installed by the two countries.

The second book called "Die Liechtenstein und die Kunst" (The Liechtensteins and the art) includes 18 lectures given by historians at a symposium in Brno about the passion for art of the Princely Family of Liechtenstein and their contribution to art in the former Bohemia.

A video of the book presentation is available at 1 FL TV (starting at 5:32).
