Description The exile organization Opus Bonum has become more widely known by organizing the symposiums in the Bayern town Franken. Especially the first meeting in February 1978 became a milestone in the history of the association and one of the most important activities of exile after the Soviet occupation in 1968. On a common platform debated the representatives of so-called "winners" together with "losers" from February 1948, e.g. Zdeněk Mlynář and Pavel Tigrid The focus of the organization thus changed from the original cultural-religious one to a discussion meeting with a strong political accent. We will examine how and why this change occurred and how the new concept influenced Opus Bonum itself and also the Czech exile milieu in Western Europe.
