Czechoslovakia was established in1918. Just 21 years later the dream ended as the Nazi ocupation began. In 1948 there was a communist coup and the whole country began to stagnate. In 1968 Communist tanks invaded Prague. The Velvet Revolution brought new hope, but there are now those who believe that is was a little too " Velvety "
Key Points.. World war 1 and the fall of the Austrian empire. The establishment of Csechoslovakia in1918. Betrayal, the Munich agreement 1938 and the Nazi protectorate The assasination of Heydrich and the Nazi revenge. the Prague Uprising. Communisn. Vaclav Havel and the reality of democracy.
