low set

of Czech (Czechoslovakia) origin, a two-bladed propeller (Propeller (aircraft)), a blown canopy, and a low set wing with rounded wingtips. The prototype had fixed undercarriage with aerodynamic fairings, but production models were to have retractable landing gear. While unarmed, there were provisions for two Browning (John Browning) machine guns in the fuselage, along with the ability to carry one additional gun under each wing. Poland has maintained a museum, archive, and research centre at Oświęcim, better known by its German name of Auschwitz, since a July 2, 1947 act of the Polish Parliament, while Czechoslovakia established in the same year what was known first as the National Suffering Memorial and later simply as the Terezín memorial in Terezín, Czech Republic, better known for its part in the Holocaust as Theresienstadt. In the context of varying degrees of Communist orthodoxy in both countries during the period of Soviet (Soviet Union) domination of Eastern Europe, historical research into the Holocaust was politicised to varying degrees, and Marxist (Marxism) doctrines of class struggle were often overlaid onto generally received histories, which tended to exclude both acts of collaboration and indications of abiding antisemitism. On January 16, 1969, student Jan Palach set himself on fire in Wenceslas Square to protest the invasion of Czechoslovakia by the Soviet Union in 1968. In 1938 Runciman returned to public life when the new Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain, sent him to Czechoslovakia to see if he could obtain a settlement between the Czechoslovak government and the Germans in the Sudetenland. In the beginning of his mission he had reasonable hope to achieve a kind of automomy for the Sudetenland within Czechoslovakia, following the Swiss model. The majority of the frustrated German population, however, wanted the Sudetenland to become part of Germany. Runciman's final report supported this solution and thus led to the Munich Agreement. Paul Vyšný: The Runciman mission to Czechoslovakia, 1938: prelude to Munich. Palgrave Macmillan, Basingstoke, Hampshire, 2003, ISBN 0-333-73136-0. Dowling claims that Runciman spent most of his time in Czechoslovakia being entertained by German aristocrats and listening to complaints from Germans that had suffered from the land reform of the 1920s.


small acting

self as "a loser... a movie geek... and shy." Ebert, Roger. ""Juno's" Reitman on Ellen Page", ''Chicago Sun-Times'', 2007-12-08. Retrieved on January 4, 2008. In the late 1980s, Reitman began appearing in small acting parts and serving as a production assistant on his father's films. He spent time in the editing rooms of his father's movies, learning the process. Throughout his 20s, instead of accepting offers to make commercial feature films, Reitman began making his own short films and directing commercials. Although he was offered the opportunity to direct ''Dude, Where's My Car?'' on two separate occasions, he declined. Competitors There were competitors from 15 countries - Bulgaria, Soviet Union, Cuba, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, North Korea, Romania, Japan, New Zealand, Denmark, West Germany, Canada, Mexico, Sweden & Italy. On July 9, 1988 at the East Germany - Italy tournament in Neubrandenburg she set a new world record with a throw of 76.80 meters. This was 2.24 meters further than the previous record, set by the Czechoslovakian Zdenka Šilhavá, and 2.72 meters further than the world record for men (who throw a discus weighing twice as much) set by Jürgen Schult (DDR) 6 June 1986. Reinsch's record still stands (as of the 2010 season) (the East German Martina Hellmann had in fact thrown 76.92 meters and 78.14 meters, both on September 6, 1988 but these came in an unofficial event and could not be counted as the world record.) Performance history ''Semyon Kotko'' was dropped from the Soviet repertoire in 1941, and the opera was not staged again anywhere until 1958 at Brno in Czechoslovakia. It finally entered the repertory of the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow in 1970, and it is now one of the main repertory staples of the Kirov Opera at the Mariinsky Theatre, St. Petersburg, where it has been repeatedly conducted by Prokofiev interpreter Valery Gergiev.

Czechoslovakia

'''Czechoslovakia''' (or '''Czecho-Slovakia'''; ) was a sovereign state in Central Europe that existed from October 1918, when it declared its independence from the Austro-Hungarian Empire (Austria-Hungary), until its peaceful dissolution (Dissolution of Czechoslovakia) into the Czech Republic and Slovakia on 1 January 1993.

From 1939 to 1945, following its forced division and partial incorporation into Nazi Germany, the state did not ''de facto'' exist but its government-in-exile (Czechoslovak government-in-exile) continued to operate. On 29 June 1945, a treaty was signed between Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union, ceding Carpatho-Ukraine to the USSR (Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic).

From 1948 to 1990 Czechoslovakia was part of the communist Warsaw Pact and had a command or planned economy (command economy). A period of political liberalization in 1968, known as the Prague Spring, was forcibly ended when several other Warsaw Pact countries invaded (Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia). In 1989, as communism was ending all over Europe, Czechoslovakians peacefully deposed their government in the Velvet Revolution; socialist price controls were removed after a period of preparation. A few years afterwards, in 1993 the country was separated into two sovereign states, again peacefully.
