The Czechoslovaks in World War One - Rebels or Loyalists?

  • 16 February 2016 From 6:30pm

A panel discussion with Professor Mark Cornwall, Dr Claire Morelon and Dr Katya Kocourek.

Czechoslovak history of World War One tends to focus on the activities of emigre politicians, the legionnaires who fought on the Allied side, and the triumphant achievement of independence in 1918. This event will look at the wartime experience of the Czech and Slovak populations in general, and in particular at the 1916 trial of Karel Kramar, Russophile leader of the domestic opposition to Austro-Hungarian rule, who was condemned to death but subsequently amnestied.
