In the last century, Czechs and Poles shared common fate many times: statehood resurrection, two totalitarian regimes, birth of modern democracy. But do we know each other? On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Czechoslovakian and Polish independence, the Polish Institute in Prague and Czech Centre in Warsaw have announced a comics competition. Over sixty authors participated – Czechs drew about Poles, Poles drew about Czechs. Their inspiration were the heroes and heroines from both nations: Věra Čáslavská, Milada Horáková, Irena Sendlerová, Anna Walentynowicz, Jan Palach, Witold Pilecki or Ryszard Siwiec. The traveling exhibition called Together in Bubbles presents awarded comics by Czech and Polish artists.
