Although the problem might seem of secondary importance, historians have long examined the stances of the Czechs and Slovaks in the critical year of 1956, their reactions emerging from the 20th Congress of the CPSU, and the reasons for the absence of movements similar to those that developed in Poland and Hungary. The essay follows this historiographical debate, from Muriel Blaive's definition of Czechoslovakia's "lost opportunity" or "missed destalinization" to Karel Kaplan's argument in favour of "period of the thaw".

Abstract

Although the problem might seem of secondary importance, historians have long examined the stances of the Czechs and Slovaks in the critical year of 1956, their reactions emerging from the 20th Congress of the CPSU, and the reasons for the absence of movements similar to those that developed in Poland and Hungary. The essay follows this historiographical debate, from Muriel Blaive's definition of Czechoslovakia's "lost opportunity" or "missed destalinization" to Karel Kaplan's argument in favour of "period of the thaw".
