This dramatic portrayal of the first Czechoslovak president (1850–1937) tells the story of modest heroism, exercised by Masaryk in the Austro-Hungarian political affairs, his activities during WWI, resulting in the nation’s emancipation, as well as the good judgement and diplomacy he employed in the building of the new state in the centre of Europe. This captivating rendering of the life of the respected statesman and philosopher, published in the Great Czechs edition, uses its libretto and two hundred illustrations to better acquaint the youngest generation with the atmosphere of the past.
