This website based on the archives of Jan Cervinka and his rich collection of photographs, documents and memorabilia were prepared by Juliet D. Golden and Hana Cervinkova. We would like to thank the numerous individuals who have contributed their time and knowledge to our efforts.
Our special recognition goes to the memory of Vilem Heckel, whose photographs appear here with the gracious permission of his family.
All materials used in the exhibit and this publication come from the personal archives of Jan Cervinka. An avid photographer and documentalist, most photographs were taken by him. But after many decades and due to the nature of taking photographs in extreme, sometimes dire circumstances, attribution is not always possible. Every effort has been made to identify authorship. For any mistakes or lack of proper attribution, we apologize.
