THE END IS JUST A NEW BEGINNING
Director MarieAnna Dvorak
To learn about what man has done and thus what man is, is
one tough lesson. Have you ever wondered whether our
future generations will be free of war? It has been
calculatedthatsince 3,600 BC there have been over 14,500
majorwars (260 withing the last century). Is killingeach
other part of human species?
Einsteinanswered this question six years before WWII in his
letterto Sigmund Freud: "As long as war productionis not
prohibited,we may be sure that war will follow upon war.
Unless our civilizationachievesthe moral strength to
overcomethis evil, it is bound to share the fate of former
No,civilization hasn'tchangedand thus history keeps
repeatingitself, or at least rhymes. The pursuit for
dominanceis the primary propellantof history, alwayshas
been, alwayswill be. Just like the contradictionsin
ideologies.So let's take the lesson of the past seriously and
be more cautiousabout with whom we share our homes.
Cautiousnessmeans responsibilityand it seldom causes
error. Those who like to create hysteria and don't see
the future, look closely into the facts of history.
Right now, a New Cold War is rising since the beginningof
Ukraineconflict and the situationis arguably more
dangerousthan the originalCold War.
It was an instinct that drew my mind back to the time of
postwar wounds behind the Iron Curtain.For nearly half a
century I was in denial about this unfortunate historicalfact,
andtruly, never ever mentionedit. But this time I couldn't
resist. As I began to write the first chapter with Russian
invasionof Prague, the Russian militaryinterventionin
Ukraineoccurred. It was just the beginning of closely similar
occurrences to my story. By the time I finished, a few other
significanteventshad arisen, as if they were allured by my
memories. They are the topics of today's politicalcrisis.
Onlyrecently, for the first time in my life, I turned my
attentiontoa bestselling novel that was based on my life
andpublishedduring the existence of the Iron Curtain. The
discoverywas quite shocking. Not only is the book still alive
afterthirty-two years, but also the readers are seeking
explanation tothe disturbing line between reality and
fiction.Some have also difficulty to bond with the
charactersand ask questionswhether they actuallylived. I
realizedthat the sudden idea to open my heart to the public
hada serious reason. Who else can give the readers peace
of mind than the one who really lived the life? And to the
other people a piece of true life from the essential part of
ourhistory taking place in the most eccentric cities, New
York, Atlanta, and Prague.
