Prague, Wenceslas Square, February 1948, people, enthusiasm, hope, Antonin Zapotocky (left) and Minister of Social Services Evzen Erban

Czechoslovakia. After Communist putsch in February 1948 democracy in this country vanished and a totalitarian system lasting over 40 years was established. Five year economy plans which were concepted according to Soviet model proved to be inefficient and the Communist Party illegaly founded armed workers militia (later People´s Militia) to inflict fear and terror into the general population. Thousands of "unwanted" people were sent to labor camps where many perished. Monsterous trials sent citizens and later even Communist Party members to death.
