Prague Spring from London

STORY BY: Judy Bowser
YEAR: 1968
LOCATION: Prague, Czech Republic

Judy was a military wife, her husband was in the Canadian Air Force. Last year, she was in Prague on a tour given by a retired history teacher. The guide had been there in 1968 when 2000 Russian tanks were sent in to crush the "Prague Spring", even more tanks than when Germany invaded Poland. Judy remembers exactly where she was that day. She was in London, England, with 4 other military wives, all trying to get to their husbands and children who were stationed in Germany. Thanks for sharing, Judy.
