Some time ago, Miroslav Šašek copyright heirs from the Czech Republic, Belgium and Switzerland made the decision to use those rights for the establishment of a charitable trust, which was registered at the Regional Court in České Budějovice on 26th September 2011. The aims of the Miroslav Šašek Trust – as outlined in its statute – included those of encouraging the dissemination of the work of Miroslav Šašek internationally and of promoting the creation of children’s books by contemporary authors. The original trust is now in the process of becoming a foundation.
