Former President Václav Havel has urged historians to tread with more caution when ‘judging history’ in light of the recent scandal surrounding author Milan Kundera. Writing in this week’s edition of Respekt, the former Czech president said that historians acting in good faith could do ‘more harm than good’ if they weren’t careful. Last week, Adam Hradilek published an article accusing Milan Kundera of denouncing a suspected western agent to the communist secret police, Mr Kundera subsequently denied the claims and a new witness then came forward in support of the world-famous novelist.
