Abstract and Keywords

This article focuses on the ideas of interviewing on both sides of a conflict, those who prevailed and those who were replaced. It traces the political upheavals that raged Czechoslovakia after the Second World War to understand and analyze interviewing on both sides of a conflict. Czech historians who are investigating our country's contemporary history using oral history methodology have made research into the development of society during the Communist era, including the period of normalization, one of our top priorities. This article also refers to how Czech historians recorded one hundred student revolutionaries. They recorded the narratives of approximately one hundred young people who, as university students during the crucial November days of 1989, had been a driving force in the popular uprisings that swept through Czechoslovakia in the first few days of the revolution. This article winds up by analyzing ways of interviewing ex-communist functionaries.
