"But many people didn’t know the theory and they continued in making the history as if nothing had happened."

Europeana: the history of Europe in the twentieth century depicted with a detached view, humour and bitter irony. We present in an original dramatization this fascinating commentary of the last century where war, invention of bra or perforated toilet paper took the important role. Banality and key moments get the same space, which creates a new view at our past. Through humour, irony, mystification and exact facts rises a bizarre testimony of the 20th century world. The book by Patrik Ouředník won the public survey of the newspaper Lidove noviny the Most Interesting Book award of the year 2001. It was also nominated for the Magnesia Litera award for fiction and translated into more than two dozen languages.
