Wilson, Masaryk and the Formation of Czechoslovakia

Almost a century ago, the remarkable partnership of a Czechoslovak patriot and a visionary American president set the stage for the first western-style democracy in Central Europe. In 1918, following World War I, the nation of Czechoslovakia was formed from the war-torn lands of Austria-Hungary, giving Czechs and Slovaks the chance to control their own destiny as a free nation. While the First Czechoslovak Republic was suppressed by Hitler after only 20 years, the beliefs of these two leaders- Woodrow Wilson and Tomáš G. Masaryk- remain no less compelling nearly a century after World War I.
