Karl von Habsburg spoke at the announcement in Prague in 2000 of the Czech translation of Russell Kirk’s The Conservative Mind. The video of his remarks is available here. Karl is the son of Otto von Habsburg, who died in July (we posted a memorial article by Denis Kitzinger here). Karl was a member of the European Parliament for ten years, and in the summer of 1984 he studied the thought of Edmund Burke under Russell Kirk in Mecosta. The full video of the Czech celebration—at which Annette Kirk, President of the Russell Kirk Center and Marco Respinti, Senior Fellow and Italian journalist, also spoke—can be seen here at our partner site.
