Spring Summer in Czechoslovakia
Alexander Dubcek became First Secretary of the Communist Party in Czechoslovakia. Dubcek instituted a new program-- what he called "Communism with a Human Approach". Dubcek's reforms included freedom of speech and of the press. The period became known as the "Prague Spring". The Spring came to a sudden end when Soviet troops invaded Czechoslovakia and arrested Dubcek and his government.
