Czech-born British GP, Dr Eva Hnízdo will introduce her book Diagnosis London, published in Czech in Prague in 2020, and her novel Why didn’t they leave?, which was published in London in English in 2021.
Dr Hnízdo was born in Prague in 1953. After studying medicine at Charles University she worked at a Czech hospital and then as a general practitioner in Prague before escaping to the West in 1986. In Britain she worked for 23 years in a Watford practice.
She wrote ‘Diagnóza Londýn aneb příběhy české doktorky’ (Diagnosis London or the stories of a Czech doctor) in collaboration with Lucie Weissová which compares the Czech and British healthcare systems. Her novel ‘Why didn’t they leave’ is only available in English. A family saga, it focuses not only on historical circumstances but also on family dynamics, in particular a mother-daughter relationship, and the effect the Holocaust had on the next generation.
