National Czech and Slovak Museum and Library in Cedar Rapids conducted nearly 300 oral history interviews through its landmark project Recording Voices & Documenting Memories of Czech & Slovak Americans. The project was an effort to collect and preserve the stories of 20th century immigrants who fled Communist Czechoslovakia. No one could have anticipated the personal drama conveyed in these stories. Leaving Czechoslovakia brings this oral history project to life presenting the stories of these émigrés in their own words.

This is a traveling exhibit on loan from NCSML.
