    Description & More Details

    Another totalitarian system began vigorously marching across the borders of Central Europe. The violent collectivization, mandatory atheist education, crude interrogations and imprisonment were just a few of the many experiences that profoundly affected the life of Slovak people. Cardinal Korec's book leads us vividly in the middle of this reality. Night of the Barbarians is an honest and sincere account of events as they began to unfold in front of the author's eyes beginning the night of April 13, 1950 and ending December 8, 1968.
