Julius Tomin, pt. 2: The police made it absolutely clear I was untouchable

Philosopher Julius Tomin left communist Czechoslovakia for the UK a few
years after signing Charter 77. As he explained when we spoke, the Plato
expert found it near impossible to find a job in academia in his adopted
country. But the second half of our two-part interview begins with his
underground seminars in Prague; they led to the creation of the Jan Hus
Educational Foundation in Oxford after Mr. Tomin invited leading Western
philosophers to deliver clandestine lectures.
