The bust of Vaclav Havel was dedicated in the Irish Parliament on June 18, 2015, and Havel is the first non-Irishman to be awarded this honor. The funds for the bust were raised by Beta Bajgartova, a Czech photographer living in Dublin. You can watch the documentary of this occasion and listen to the speeches of the Czech Ambassador to Ireland, Hana Mottlova, the Speaker of the Irish Parliament, Sean Barrett, the sculptor of the bust, Marie Seborova, and Bill Shipsey, the founder of Art for Amnesty and the initiator of this honor.
This program was produced by the Houses of the Oireachtas (Parliament of Ireland) for Oireachtas TV and permission to use this by the Vaclav Havel Library Foundation was granted in 2015.
