Mobilizing its historic and cultural resources, the city of Konstanz, in parternship with various organizations, launched, on the occasion of the 600th anniversary of the Council of Constant (Konziljubilaum), a multi-year long jubilee (2014-2018), comprised of museum and art exhibits, music and theatre performances, worship services, and guided tours. The jubilee is branded as “Europa zum Gast” – “Europe visits” and each year’s event are built around a particular figure and theme. The year 2015, themed as “The Year of Justice,” takes as focus the figure of Jan Hus.
The city of Konstanz is not alone in remembering Jan Hus. ‘JanHus600‘ is an independent group in the Czech Republic, drawing together local and national groups to remember, celebrate and reflect on the history, memory and on-going relevance of Jan Hus.
