This exhibition to the 70th anniversary of the end of the Second World War II is devoted to the tragic fates of people who fought against fascist coalition of the German army – against the Romanians, Italians, Japanese and other allies of Hitler – and who later for their patriotic efforts after the end of the Second World War and after the communist coup in Czechoslovakia ended up on gallows, in prisons, in exile or in complete oblivion. A part of the exhibition focuses on the eastern army, which was formed in the Soviet Union, and includes two themes: the first is the Kratochvíl's and Svoboda's Army Corps in the Soviet Union, the second is the Czechoslovaks fighting in the Soviet army. The part consecrated to the western army represents the Czechoslovaks fighting in France, the UK and Africa, or those involved in the American Liberation Army and other formations.
