THE EMBASSY of Slovakia will hold a book party introducing The Silent Conspiracy: A Communist Model of Political Cleansing at the Slovak University in Bratislava after WWII, by Zoltan G. Mesko, on October 7 at 18:30 at the Embassy of the Slovak Republic in Washington, DC.

Mesko, who was born in the eastern Slovak town of Košice, graduated from the Medical School of the Bratislava Commenius University in 1952. Until the invasion of the Warsaw Pact's armies in August 1968, he served as an Assistant Professor of Paediatrics at the Children's Hospital in Bratislava. After having been invited to the Children's Hospital Boston, part of the Harvard Medical School, in 1969, he and his family decided to emigrate.

After the revolution in November 1989, Doctor Mesko established the Heart to Heart Foundation for children with heart disease in Slovakia. The Fund generated about $100,000.

After extensive archival research and data collection, Mesko wrote the book and published it in 1999, with its second edition in 2000. Besides the English version, the German translation should see its publication this year. Doctor Mesko now lives in southern France.
