More InformationShow full item record
North Dakota native and author who escaped the Nazi invasion of Czechoslovakia while on an official visit. The Zdena Trinka Papers consist of biographical material, a letter to Russell Reid of the State Historical Society of North Dakota critical of his involvement in the NBC television movie on the Marquis de Mores and her book Medora. There is a 470-page typed draft of an unpublished work entitled "Colorful Czechoslovakia." It is a descriptive work on the history, towns, country and life styles in Czechoslovakia. The remaining two manuscripts are copies and are each only six pages in length. "The Gift of Gifts" concerns an old man, Uncle Michael and his death. "Hitler's nearing Death," uses the Bible of Kralice to interpret the political turmoil of the late 1930s and in particular Adolph Hitler.
