The Czechoslovak Communists’ rise to power and subsequent destruction of the state played out from at least 1945. February 1948 saw Communist efforts to seize power reach a climax, leading to not just a denial of all of the principles on which Czechoslovakia stood during the First Republic but also the complete disintegration of society. One immediate response to the Communist repression was a student march in February 1948. This subject will be explored by the writer and publisher Jiří Padevět and the historian Petr Koura.
