PETR UHL
The Czech human rights activist signs his name in blue felt tip.
Signature: "Petr Uhl", in blue felt tip, 4¾x3¼. Petr Uhl (b. 1941) is a Czech human rights activist and politician. Uhl graduated from the Czech Technical University as a mechanical engineer, working as a teacher and patent attorney. During the Prague Spring movement in 1969, Uhl was sentenced to 4 years in prison for his activities during the liberalization. He was released in 1973, and continued work as an engineer. In 1976 he co-founded the Committee for the Defence of the Unjustly Persecuted, with the goal of publicizing cases of political prisoners. Uhl would find himself jailed again in for his activist movements 1979, this time for five years. Most notably, he would be called to attention in the media in 1989, when he reported to Radio Free Europe that a fictitious student named Martin Smid was killed during a peaceful demonstration in downtown Prague. Although the statement was later found false, it aided in mobilizing the Velvet Revolution, bringing down the communist regime in Czechoslovakia. He later apologized for the statement, saying it was a misunderstanding. Since then, Uhl has continued his activist rights goal, and is still active politically today. Pencil note (unknown hand). Fine condition.
