Children of the Revolution


On this, the 14th anniversary of Czechoslovakia's Velvet Revolution, Prague resident Doug Arellanes translates a Czech newspaper's interviews with a bunch of local 14-year-olds. Example:

What comes to me when you say Velvet Revolution? Havel. The fall of the communist regime and the birth of a democratic state. What happened, I don't know. Brezhnev died?
