Petr Stančík’s new novel presented in Germany


Petr Stančík presented his latest novel Pravomil in German translation (Die Verjährung) at the German-Czech Culture Festival in Bremen. Stančík’s picaresque novel is inspired by the true story of war hero Pravomil Raichl (1921-2002).

Pravomil experiences the eventful history of the 20th century, from the interwar years, via Gestapo interrogations, to the hell of the Soviet gulag. As if by a miracle, he survives World War II battles and death sentences, finally emigrating to the USA. At the end of his life Pravomil returns to his homeland to take justice into his own hands.
