We would like to invite you to a debate on "80 years ago General de Gaulle declared the Munich Agreement null and void". On 29 September 1942, General de Gaulle declared the Munich Agreement null and void from the outset. It was a powerful gesture and an unappreciated act of resistance. How can we understand his declaration? Why on this day? What were the immediate consequences for relations between the Czechoslovaks and the French? And what, in general, is the legacy of the Munich Agreement in France, in the Czech Republic and at the heart of Franco-Czech relations?
