To facilitate the Vision Centre’s Enlargement programme the Cork Public Museum hosted an exhibition on Slovak politician Alexander Dubcek. From January 1968 he was leader of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia. He became a symbol of the “Prague Spring”, the aim of which was to build communism “with a human face”. After the occupation of Czechoslovakia by the armies of the Warsaw Pact Dubcek was gradually stripped of all his functions and expelled from the party in 1970.

The exhibition was officially launched by Jan Gabor the Ambassador of the Slovak Republic.
