Otto Pick's 90th Birthday
Professor Otto Pick is celebrating his 90th birthday this week. We would like to wish him all the best and remind you of his fruitful journey. But how can you describe on one page a life so full of accomplishments? Professor Pick fought in the Second World War, worked for the BBC, was the head of the Czechoslovak section of Radio Free Europe and had a long and successful academic career, which included his receiving of the title of professor. He also served as a politician in the post of the First Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs. For us, the employees of the Institute of International Relations Prague, however, the most important part of his career was the period 1993-1998, when he served as the director of the Institute. He contributed immensely to its development, and he continued to support the Institute even in his later functions. We would therefore like to congratulate him and wish him all the best in the name of our entire institute.
