The film The Tower of Death by Kristina Vlachová is a return to the misery of the 40s and 50s. The death of Jan Masaryk, the execution of Heliodor Píka, the judicial murder of Milada Horáková were all indications of the arriving period of totalitarian terror. Thousands of prisoners served their sentences in inhuman conditions of the uranium mines in the Jáchymov region. Today, it is hard to return to the world of camps, tragedies, misfortune and deaths of people devastated by the sophisticated machinery, which although imported was perfected by the Czechs.
