Description The aim of the paper is to analyse the reactions as well as responses of that time to the publications of Anna Horáková-Gašparíková. This especially concerns the works which impressed the Czechoslovak scientific community the most, including her rigorous thesis called “Povstanie Rákocziho a Slovania”, a historical monograph titled “Tisícročné Slovensko” and diaries published in book form called “U Masarykovcov. Spomienky osobnej archivárky T. G.Masaryka”. The publication of the long-awaited diary in the 1990s sparked a number of responses and dozens of reviews were published by well- -known historians as well as less known authors who felt the need to respond. In the paper, we are more specifically dealing with what the authors criticized Anna Horáková- -Gašparíková for and to what extent there were author’s unintentional mistakes resulting from her position as the archivist of the President of Czechoslovakia as well as her devotion to the idea of Czechoslovakism. Most authors appreciated the historical and social significance of author’s work, despite the shortcomings they reproach her for. The monograph called “Tisícročné Slovensko” received strong criticism and many consider this work to be an unsuccessful attempt to write about our history.
