How many Gustav Gusakovs were there in the world? An amazing amount, it seems. Gustav Husak, a diligent student of the Bratislava Gymsium, who deserved praise for his stylistic work on October 28, and T. G. Masaryk. Gustav Husak, a left-wing intellectual, by the way, is the only intellectual among communist presidents who belongs to the circle of the important left-wing magazine DAV. Gustav Husak, one of the leaders of the resistance to the clero-fascist Slovak state. Gustav Husak, who suggested to Stalin during the war that after it Slovakia would become a federal republic of the Soviet Union.

Gustav Husak, chairman of the board of trustees (de facto Slovak republican government), who, with the help of a repressive apparatus, including the State Security, mercilessly liquidates the Slovak Democratic Party, thereby spending a “little February” in Slovakia in the autumn of 1947.

Gustav Husak, convicted in the 1950s as a “bourgeois tiolist” but as one of the few communist victims of the court machine he himself helped launch, boasts that he was unbreakable and therefore did not play a shameful role in the staged judicial process. (The trial was staged, but Gustav Husak did not accuse himself of crimes he did not commit and did not ask for the most severe punishment.)

Gustav Husak and Andrei Babish: offspring of the same hell

Husak spent all of the 1950s in prison; he was released only in 1960. However, the list of his faces does not end there. In the 1960s, he became one of the main figures of the reform movement, during the Prague Spring he acted as a faithful follower of Alexander Dubcek. So, Gusak is a reformer. Only then does the most famous form of its existence begin – the Gander-normalizer.

General President

On the cusp of normalization, many people placed great “realistic” hopes on him, precisely because of his past, that he would eventually become the Czechoslovakian Kadar. However, Husak deliberately played a major role in the appeasement strategy, which was to have the “workers’ and peasants’ government” program implemented by one of the reformers, using salami tactics to make it easier for the public to swallow. He was probably primarily driven by persol ambitions, the desire for power at any cost, as indicated by the fact that he was not satisfied with the title of first secretary, which he changed from May 1971 to general secretary.

When Gustav Husak added the office of head of state in 1975, he eventually became president of oblivion. However, like Antonín Novotny, he did not use the castle as a center of power at all. That is why his successor, Vaclav Havel, was surprised that he could not find a single hour in the offices of the Castle. There was almost no technical and personnel equipment in the building with the help of which it would be possible to carry out the policy. It served only for representatiol purposes and for President Husak to record his New Year’s speech here. Rather, the monstrous Palace of Culture (today the Congress Center), completed in 1981, which was popularly called Pakul, became the architectural symbol of his reign.

Although the presidency had further deteriorated during the fourteen years of Husak’s presidency, its symbolic significance was still great. This is also evidenced by the fact that Vaclav Havel applied for this position during the revolution. Another event testifies to the enduring significance of the castle.

When Gustav Husak died on November 18, 1991, Jan Czarnogurski, then prime minister of the Slovak government, and František Miklószko, speaker of parliament, also attended his funeral, to the incomprehensible and outraged astonishment of the Czech public. They explained their presence at the funeral by saying, among other things, that whoever Husak was, he was the first Slovak to hold the presidency of Czechoslovakia. The Czechs have never appreciated this, because they do not understand this way of thinking. That is why Czechoslovakia collapsed about a year after Husak’s death.
