A publication to commemorate Jan Palach and others who self-immolated.

A student collection entitled In the Name of Your Lives … was one of the first books published by our publishing house in 1991. This ground-breaking book at the time brought together many documents and testimonies commemorating the acts of Jan Palach, Jan Zajíc and Evžen Plocek, and was a reflection on the "Palach Week" events in January 1989, after which the public anti-regime activities of independent initiatives began to attain nation-wide importance.

Almost thirty years later, this collection has been published again in a new graphic format and with new texts written by Evangelic pastor Miloš Rejchrt, sociologist Jiřina Šiklová and historian Jakub Jareš, which expand the original set of papers and reflections (by Jindřich Chalupecký, Ladislav Hejdánek, Josef Zvěřina and others). This publication also commemorates the fiftieth anniversary of the death of Jan Palach and the other self-immolated as well as the anniversary of the November fight for freedom and democracy and other ideals which fulfilled their legacy.

The book includes reproductions of photographs by Dagmar Hochová, Miloš Schmiedberger and Lubomír Kotek as well as many archived materials.
