Oldřich Škácha is known especially thanks to his pictures of Czech dissident scene in 1970’s and 1980’s, especially the personalities surrounding Pavel Kohout or Václav Havel. For almost twenty years he had hidden in his studio a unique series of pictures documenting the invasion of Warsaw Pact to Czechoslovakia in August 1968.

The series is exhibited in order to commemorate the 50th anniversary of this crucial point in the Czech history.
