Year 2014 marks the centenary of the WW I outbreak and the 70th anniversary of the Slovak National Uprising, followed in a year's time by the 70th anniversary of the Victory over Fascism (2015). To commemorate these milestones of our history, the Theatre Institute prepared a double volume almanac of Slovak plays with the theme of the WW I, the WW II and the Slovak National Uprising.
These volumes consist of stage plays by Slovak playwrights, originating within a wide span of time from the interwar period until the 90s of the past century (Martin Rázus, Vladimír Hurban Vladimírov, Ferko Urbánek, Jozef Gregor-Tajovský, Karol Horák, Ivan Stodola, Leopold Lahola, Juraj Váh, Peter Karvaš, Ivan Bukovčan, Osvald Zahradník, Vladimír Klimáček, etc.).
The double volume almanac shall allow for its readers to witness the true image of how Slovak drama thematized specific historical events – military conflicts of the 20th century in various political regimes. Concurrently, it is way of honoring victims of the most atrocious war conflicts of the 20th century (Andrea Dömeová).
