Masaryk returning to Kostelec, hat not in hand

To mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of Czechoslovakia, the town
of Kostelec nad Orlicí took up a public collection to erect a new statue
of the country’s founder and first president, Tomáš Garrique Masaryk.
But it won’t be a faithful replica of the original – removed by the
Nazis and later melted down by the Communists.
