Jan Munk has twice been elected president of the Federation of Jewish Communities in the Czech Republic. He has been director of the Terezin Memorial since 1990. He holds a special interest in this memorial, since his parents were transported to the Terezin Ghetto in 1941 and later to Auschwitz-Birkenau and other concentration camps. He was born in Prague in 1946, where he studied sociology and philosophy at Charles University. He has devoted his professional career as a sociological researcher to the problems of students. His article discusses not only the physical aspects of the memorials to Jewish victims of the Holocaust in Czechoslovakia, but also touches on the museological problems encountered when a totalitarian regime rewrites history for the purposes of ideological deformation.
