The Institute for the Study of Totalitarian Regimes is not an archive so does not make accessible any archival materials, not even State Security documents, which many people seek from us. That falls within the authority of the Security Services Archive.

If you are seeking information from the archival materials of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia (KSČ) contact the National Archives.
