Except for the movie, the project itself comprises also of the webpage www.spytajsavasich.sk that serves as an interactive online memorial book where short texts, videos, audio records and photographs can be uploaded and shared, portraying people’s memories of the events of 1968 in Slovakia and all around the world.
