Designation of Small House Rotunda

Washington – President Barack Obama on Monday, November 2, 2015, signed into law a bipartisan budget bill that includes Designating Small House Rotunda as “Freedom Foyer”. This section designates the first floor area of the House of Representatives wing of the U.S. Capitol known as the Small House Rotunda as “Freedom Foyer.” Busts of Winston Churchill, Lajos Kossuth, and Vaclav Havel are on display in the Freedom Foyer.

As a result of efforts made by Vaclav Havel Library Foundation, the bust of Vaclav Havel was dedicated last November on the 25th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution in former Czechoslovakia.
