Moscow Eye VS Prague’s Hand

I recently discovered the works of JiÙ Trnka (1912-1969), a Czech artist mostly known for his puppet animations films. In 1965, he created “The Hand” to denounce Soviet control over the arts and freedom of speech.
By association of ideas, it made me realize that one of my most lasting and vivid childhood memories is dated from December 25th 1989 when I watched on TV the execution Nicolae and Elena CeauÅŸescu.
Far be it from me to compare Czechoslovakia and Romania that goes without saying…
