My Uncle Vanished
Where Did He Go, Mr. President?

Czech Philharmonic

In this music drama workshop, the pupils and students follow in the footsteps of Josef Toufar (1902–1950), a priest in the village Číhošť who was tortured to death by Communist State Security officers. They will consider the meaning of heroism, truth, sacrifice, and the overcoming of obstacles in the life of a person. Through the fates of the people connected with the “Číhošť Miracle”, they will get a picture of events of the 1950s in Czechoslovakia. In the first part, three paths leading to the mystery of the story will open up before the children. In the second part, they will join with musicians and actors – and with music by Slávek Hořínka – and enter into the drama about the last days of Josef Toufar.

A workshop for elementary pupils in grades 7–9 and for secondary school students
