The Czechoslovak Communists’ rise to power and subsequent destruction of the state played out from at least 1945. February 1948 saw Communist efforts to seize power reach a climax, leading to not just a denial of all of the principles on which Czechoslovakia stood during the First Republic but also the complete disintegration of society. One immediate response to the Communist repression was a student march in February 1948. This subject will be explored by the writer and publisher Jiří Padevět and the historian Petr Koura.

To all citizens – appeal

„If, at a given moment, you find it more appropriate to act like Hus, then act like Hus, but if, on the other hand, you feel it’s more effective to act like Švejk, then act like Švejk.“

Václav Havel:
To all citizens – appeal, August 26, 1968
