Post-War Czechoslovakia, Communist Coup and the Cold War Exile

April 9 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Czechoslovakia was liberated from the Nazis in May 1945, however the gradual Sovietization and the dominance of the Communist party took place in the country. The Communists completed the takeover in February 1948 and the period of their totalitarian regime lasted for more than four decades. After the takeover, thousands of Czechs and Slovaks (up to 300 000 between 1948-1989), who sought the return of freedom and democracy to their homeland, left.  Come learn about their story from Dr. Nekola who will discuss various aspects of the Czechoslovak Cold War exile (with a particular focus on the USA) in his contribution.
