The first official meeting of the friends of Řetízkárna also caught the attention of the media. An article by Petr Kozohorský was published in Mladá fronta DNES, which reflects both the intention of the initiators of the rescue of the former muggle dressing room, as well as the cooperation with the Krušnohoří Destination Agency and the cross-border dimension of the project.
Last year, we started a public collection on the Donio portal as part of a cultural event called (NE)Festival Řetízkárna. We are happy to announce that this year we will follow up on the successful zero year, on Saturday, June 3, 2023 , i.e. symbolically on the anniversary of the abolition of the Rovnost labor camp ( June 1, 1961 ).
Help us save the ruin of the former “chain” changing room near Jáchymov. Let’s transform together the last authentic building on the territory of the largest Czechoslovak uranium camp into a community and educational center. Let’s create a new space where we will devote ourselves to education about the Ore Mountains, their inhabitants and the traumas of the 20th century. It will become a place for meetings, organizing cultural events, summer schools and, last but not least, also a base for walks along the renewed educational trail Jachymov’s hell. Exactly such a place is missing in the region…
The Association Political prisoners.eu, which is for example behind the restoration of the Jachymov’s hell educational trail, managed to buy t the object of the changing room at the former convict labor camp and uranium mine Rovnost near Jáchymov. The hope, which was launched at the beginning of the year by a successful public collection, was fulfilled thanks to the efforts of volunteers and friends of the association. The rescue of the building and its transformation into a community and educational center begins.
