It’s interesting that Billington mentions the friendship of Havel with playwright Tom Stoppard without adding that Stoppard was born in Zlín, the Czech factory town of Bata shoes, and while a small boy, escaped with his family at the last possible moment before the Nazi occupation.

Havel will be remembered as a courageous world leader – but we shouldn’t forget his subversive satires of Czech communist life.
