The Czech lands – the northern region of Bohemia, southern region of Moravia, and northeastern region of Silesia – are located at the heart of Central Europe, surrounded by more powerful and historically dominating nations. Like much of the region, the Czech lands saw the worst of the 20th century and were often a literal and figurative battleground, during both world wars as well as the ensuing Cold War.

“Central Europeans have more in common [with each other] than we sometimes realize,” says novelist and screenwriter Jaroslav Rudis, co-writer of a three-part graphic novel called Alois Nebel. “After all these centuries, we have to deal with the same problems from our past. And probably the same guilt, too.”
