The website Minulost.cz (The Past, History) is one of the projects of the civic association Centre for the documentation of totalitarian regimes (CDTR). It is conceived as a historical popularisation quarterly dedicated to the history of totalitarian regimes of the 20th century and the coming to terms with their past. An electronic periodical directed by an editorial board, it will be bringing articles, essays, commentaries, interviews and polemics. Shorter specialised texts will be presented too, be it in form of short studies, editions of documents or reviews. The website will also utilise audiovisual materials, providing the readers for example with reproductions of works of art, period photographs or video recordings from recent events of CDTR (in this issue, you will find a recording of the discussion about the abolition of the State security at the beginning of 1990 which took place this February in the Libri prohibiti library). While the website will be renewed with a quarterly periodicity, texts on current issues will be published throughout.
