„Věděla jsem, že já se s tímhle nesmířím“

Interview with Anna Šabatová, by Apolena Rychlíková (A2larm, Prague)

Kontradikce. Časopis pro kritické myšlení V, č. 1 (2021): 71–86

Keywords: Charter 77, the Velvet Revolution, leftist perspectives, post-communism, feminism, human rights

In this interview with documentary filmmaker Apolena Rychlíková, Anna Šabatová, one of the most remarkable figures of modern Czechoslovak history, considers not only the intellectual foundations of Charter 77 and the dissident movement, but also what shaped Šabatová’s personal background. The interview introduces an often-overlooked continuity between dissent and critical approaches to the post-communist era. This continuity is present in the humanistic, left-wing thought of Anna Šabatová, stemming from the tradition of the Czechoslovak democratic left, which permeates her whole life, not only philosophically and intellectually, but above all practically. Anna Šabatová’s lifelong efforts for a more just society have never stopped, connecting the period before 1989 with the period that followed.
