There were more than 50,000 Czechs and Slovaks living in New York City in the early 20th century and they continue to have a presence today. The exhibition “Czech and Slovak New York, 1848-2018,” consisting of eleven panels with dozens of unique photographs and images, offers New York audiences a rare opportunity to explore the many locations in New York City with connections to Czech and Slovak history, and to recall important personalities, organizations and periodicals.


The exhibition, celebrating the centennial of the foundation of Czechoslovakia in 1918, is accompanied by a printed brochure. A lecture by the author of the exhibition, Martin Nekola, will take place on Monday, October 15 at 7:00 pm.
