One year before the opening of the first General World Exposition in the Arab World, the organizers of the EXPO in Dubai published a book of fairy tales from all over the world. In it, the Czech Republic is represented by the story of the robots Radius and Helena written based on the play R.U.R. by Karel Čapek. The Czech author wrote this with the help of his brother Josef exactly one hundred years ago, and on January 25, 1921, the word robot was first heard on stage.
