Invasion 1968 – Prague Spring

Today marks the anniversary of the end of the invasion of Czechoslovakia by the Soviets. It was known as, “Prague Spring”. These images are by one of my favorite photographers, Josef Koudelka.

  1. I understand why you love this photographer. These images are powerful for the human emotion, drama, strength of the human spirit, determination and more captured. Thank you for sharing these incredible photos.

  2. Startling and we did nothing. Not part of our sphere of influence.
