About

Ends Oct. 31, Skala Bartizal Library

The 1968 Prague Spring (January-August) was a period of political liberalization in Czechoslovakia during the era dominated by the Soviet Union after World War II. The hopes for reform were quashed when the Soviet Union invaded the country in late August. This exhibition marks the 50th anniversary of these historic events and portrays through photographs, video, and political cartoons the myriad emotions, actions, and responses these
events prompted.
