At the same time, the opening of the monument in Lima opened Weklow Havel Week, a series of cultural and social events based on the work of the former president.
For example, the first scene of the audience play will be the opening of a photo exhibition commemorating Howell’s life, a political legacy and the screening of a literary work or Howell film.

“The ideas and traditions of Weklow Havel are identical, not superior, and are even more important today than they were at the time they were written,” said Ambassador Setleek.
“The embassy of the Czech Republic in Peru has prepared a plan for the Peruvian audience, which will introduce Veklov Havel as a dissident, playwright and president and defender of human rights,” Sedlik said.
Wiglow Havel’s benches are located in various locations around the world, for example in the United States, Ireland, Spain, Slovakia, Italy or Israel.
