About us

This website is a pilot project of the Luxembourg Embassy in Prague and aims to collect memories of the auditors of the Radio Luxembourg, thus showing the impact of the radio station in socialist Czechoslovakia. The Prague project follows up on the project of the exhibition organized by the Luxembourg Embassy in Warsaw in 2012 and is produced with the participation of corporate historian within RTL Group, but also with Czech and Slovak witnesses, whose lives were indisputably marked by “Laxik”. Let us not forget the financial support of the Luxembourg Ministry of Foreign Affairs, without which this website could not have been created.

On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Radio Luxembourg (the ancestor of today’s RTL), the University of Luxembourg has decided to build on the experience of the Laxík project. The Center for Contemporary and Digital History has launched a scientific project, researching the history of Radio Luxembourg, including its reception abroad. If you’re curious, or want to contribute to the research, you can find out more about the project here : https://radio.lu/en/the-project/
