The Carpatho-Rusyn Society
Czechoslovakia: Behind the Iron Curtain
Please join us for a presentation by Dr. Zuzana Palovic co-author of the recently-published book by the same name about daily life under communism. The book is a culmination of research by Dr. Palovic and her colleague, Dr. Gabriela Bereghazyova into the daily life of Czechoslovakia citizens. We’ve heard the rhetoric, we’ve heard the political theory and western reports, now let’s hear what happened from those on the inside. The presentation will describe the details of how the communist government went forth with converting the country into a perfect society overnight and how its citizens acquiesced, resisted, attempted to escape its grip and finally brought down the regime.
Drs. Palovic and Bereghazyova were born in Czechoslovakia, educated in… and now run a Bratislava-based non-profit organization “Global Slovakia” dedicated to the sharing Slovakia with the world. They are also the authors of “Slovakia, The legend of the Linden” and “The Great Return”. In addition to books, they offer several educational opportunities worldwide. www.globalslovakia.com
