Ticket to the New World

Ticket to the New World tracks the fates of 16 significant figures of the First Czechoslovak Republic’s cultural life – artists, who at the beginning of World War II decided to leave the country, either out of fear of persecution or because they refused to live under a totalitarian regime. They frequently emigrated to the US – an initially neutral country which protected and cherished its democratic values. Their voyage ticket foreshadowed their entrance to the American cultural scene, which they later significantly influenced and contributed to with their creativity.
