History told through modern technology

Historia Futurae is an NGO where modern technologies such as augmented (AR) or virtual reality (VR) intersect with historical topics. Historia Futurae is built on the principles of openness, transparency, collaboration, and clarity in transmission of history to the widest possible audience. Engagingly, without prejudice and embellishment.

Interdisciplinary cooperation between historians and developers

Historia Futurae was founded in July 2019 by Jan Blazek and his marketing, development and history colleagues. We want to take advantage of the know-how we have acquired through the commercial projects of our creative consultancy Little Greta and AR and VR agency VRCOT, to deliver meaningful non-profit projects.

The prison in Uherské Hradiště, Czech Republic, has a notorious history.

During the First Republic, workers striving for better social rights were isolated there. During the Protectorate, many Czech patriots and anti-fascist fighters were also imprisoned. After the communist coup in February 1948, during trials staged by the communist authorities, the Hradiště prison became a place of suffering for hundreds of people. In prison adjacent to the regional courthouse, people were tortured, interrogated and executed in ways similar to that of the Gestapo.

Our goal is to create a mobile application, Immersive Exhibition Behind the Wall, using augmented reality (AR). The project's purpose is to share and communicate the history of the prison in Uherské Hradiště, and the victims persecuted there for their communist ideologies. The joint project (with non-profit organisation Memoria) is an example of innovative commemoration of this repressed memory of society.
