Unpublished encyclopaedia - the process with Alexander Hirner and his colleagues started fifty five years ago
After the Second World War, in countries under the influence of the USSR including Czechoslovak Republic many politically motivated monumental processes were tried. Many of them began even after illegal actions had been revealed because of the personality cult of J.V. Stalin notwithstanding official party documents for remedial actions that were approved in the Czechoslovak Republic. Due to overall cultural sovietization, some branches of science among them also sociology was condemned in these ideological fights and called “bourgeois pseudoscience”. One of these monumental processes took place between 1958 and 1969 with one of the most influential Slovak sociologist Alexander Hirner and his colleagues. In this framed process, A. Hirner was condemned to a long imprisonment. He was declared by the court to be “the strongest and the most avowed enemy of the people's democratic order”, who can only be corrected after serving a long sentence. In 1969, the process war rendered null and void from its start and accusations to be fabricated.
