The collateral damage done by the terror inflicted by totalitarian governments spreads from their direct victims like ripples on the water. Whether intended on not, the secondary victims may suffer just as much as the primary focus of repressive terror. Understandably, this can have a significant, lifelong effect on secondary and tertiary victims and therefore societies in which they live. The daughters of the so called enemies of the Czech communist state are one such group. Unfortunately, there are similar groups throughout the world wherever totalitarian governments exist or existed. Studying the lives of children who suffered repression and understanding the impact allows us to both help the victims and help heal the impacted societies. Hopefully documenting and archiving the stories of those who lived through this terror may help prevent similar tragedies in the future.

It has been a pleasure to be the English language editor for many of the entries on this website www.enemysdaughters.com
