Sunday is the 20th anniversary of the dissolution of the Narodní fronta or National Front, a grouping which served as a kind of bogus alternative to the Communist Party during the latter’s four-decade rule in Czechoslovakia. The National Front of Czechs and Slovaks was originally a coalition of democratic and anti-fascist groupings which made up the country’s first government in 1945 following the end of World War II. However, after the Communist takeover of 1948 it was turned into a puppet party under the control of the totalitarian regime.
