"Husák and Kádár. Czechoslovakian–Hungarian Relationships between Appeasement and Conflict (1968–1989) In the night of 20–21 August 1968 the five member-states of the Warsaw Pact launched military attack against Czechoslovakia and occupied the country in few hours. That put an end of the eight months period called Prague Spring. The study is to show how the Czechoslovakian-Hungarian political relationship formulated after the intervention. The purpose of this research is to find the answer on how the Hungarian leadership responded to the new situation and what policies they made for overcoming the crisis. The author – based on documents – claims that János Kádár – after being forced to undertake the military action, which he had opposed all the time before – started immediately to save all that was possible. The study presents what Kádár’s standpoint was after the military intervention and what role he played in the process in which Husák was named First Secretary of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia. In addition, the study charts the political relationship between Husák and Kádár during and after the “normalization” and lights those cases leading to conflicts within the Czechoslovakian-Hungarian relationship between 1969 and 1989. It is also looking for answer of that question how the Czechoslovakian leadership counted on the Hungarian experience of “consolidation” gained after 1957.
