University of Kansas: Dr. Anna M. Cienciala's "Eastern Europe 1945–56 and Czechoslovakia 1968"

Read parts A and B of this lecture. Lecture 17A has a section entitled "The Revolts of 1956," which is particularly important to understand. As you read this section, ask yourself the following question: what were the most important differences between the revolts in Poland and Hungary? As you study lecture 17B, focus on both the origins and the outcomes of the Prague Spring in Czechoslovakia.
