- Program Description
“With the collapse of the Austrian empire at the the close of World War I, the dream of Thomas Masaryk and Edward Benes for independence for the Czechs and Slovaks could be realized. During the war they led cloak and dagger life in an attempt to enlist support for their objectives and they won out at the Peace Conference. They reorganized the economic and social structures of the state, creating an industrial and agricultural revolution. They were the most stalwart supporters of the League of Nations, recognizing that only through collective security could the small states survive. Until the destruction of the state by Hitler, Czechoslovakia was to be a democratic model in Europe in a vast Fascist and Communist desert.”
