TWO NEW DOCUMENTS ON PRESIDENT EDVARD BENES' VISIT TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND TO CANADA IN MAY AND JUNE 1943
Languages of publication
Two new documents are published here providing important information about the visit of President Edvard Benes to the USA and Canada in May-June 1943. The author of the first, quite detailed report describing the President's visit to the United States and the first comments was one of Benes' closest collaborators during the first phase of resistance movement Jan Papanek, a long-time Czechoslovak consul in Pittsburg and later a leading worker of the Czechoslovak Information Service in New York. The document describes also the course of the visit, records the President's important speeches and thus completes the materials published before, which mostly concerned his talks with American statesmen. The other report included here was written by the first Czechoslovak Ambassador to Canada Frantisek Pavlasek, and describes the course of and responses to Benes' visit to the Maple Leaf Country. Both documents extend our current knowledge of the responses to Benes' visits to a number of Czech and Slovak communities as well as to other refugee and exile groups, such as Polish, Ruthenian and Hungarian.
