Religious freedom was suppressed in Czechia for fifty years from 1939 to 1989—first under Nazi rule, then under the Communist regime. The Communist regime stated that everyone had religious freedom, but reality was different. Last year it was described in a decision by the Supreme Court of the Czech Republic: “The Constitution proclaimed religious freedom but the legal standards at lower level liquidated it de facto.” (The decision No. 4 Tz 166/99 of November 16, 1999, re: Karel Novak)
