Czech exile in Australia (1948–1989)

Jaroslav Miller, Jana Burešová, Miloš Trapl

The history of Czech exile in Australia is still an un told story of many individual fates as well as the modern collective memory of Czechs.

Surprisingly, Australia became the country after World War II to accept the largest number of exiles from Europe affected by communism and the war fury. Post-February and later post-August exile from The Czech
Koslovenska represented a large and organized community, which was strongly involved in the fight against communism. Czech (and Slovak) exile created a strong subculture in Australia, which gave rise to a number of political and artistic achievements and in which a number of strong personalities stood out.
