Konev Smeltery

  • Czech Republic
Audio Tracks 

During the communist period the Konev smeltery in Kladno produced "peace steel", which was meant to be poured down the throats of imperialists. Today in place of the factory there remains an industrial wilderness, in which the poorest inhabitants from the nearby ghettoes collect copper and iron. Bohumil Hrabal and Vladimír Boudník as relevant as ever.
