This is followed by an enumeration of the addresses at which the person in question lived in the Czechoslovak Republic, links to previously published bibliographies (in the Czechoslovak Republic) and additional works published in the Czechoslovak Republic, details on Czech and foreign archives in which material on the given person is stored, and a selection of the literature.
