'''Azacitidine''' (INN (International Nonproprietary Name)) or '''5-azacytidine''', sold under the trade name '''Vidaza''', is a chemical analogue (analog (chemistry)) of cytidine, a nucleoside present in DNA and RNA. Azacitidine and its deoxy derivative, decitabine (also known as 5-aza-2′deoxycytidine), are used in the treatment of myelodysplastic syndrome. Both drugs were first synthesized in Czechoslovakia as potential chemotherapeutic agent (chemotherapy)s for cancer.

and in May 1948 it recognized the establishment (Declaration of the Establishment of the State of Israel, May 14, 1948) of the State of Israel there, subsequently supporting it with weapons (via Czechoslovakia, in defiance of the embargo) in the 1948 Arab-Israeli war. Many Soviet Jews felt inspired and sympathetic towards Israel and sent thousands of letters to the (still formally existing) JAC with offers to contribute to or even volunteer for Israel's defense.

cultural education

spokespersons for the Charter 77 (Charta 77) human rights movement in Czechoslovakia. Along with other banned intellectuals he gave lectures at the so called "Underground University", which was an informal institution that tried to offer a free, uncensored cultural education. In the days just before his death, he was subjected to long interogations by the Czechoslovak secret police (StB), no doubt due to his involvement with the movement. He died at the age of 69 of apoplexy, after an 11 hour interrogation. On October 28, 1939 (anniversary of the independence of the Czechoslovak Republic (Czechoslovakia)) there were anti-Nazi demonstrations and riots in Prague, which were suppressed by Nazi forces. Jan Opletal was seriously wounded by a shot to his stomach, and later died on November 11. His funeral on November 15, attended by several thousands of students, turned into another anti-Nazi demonstration. As a result, the Reichsprotektor (Nazi-representative in the puppet-state Bohemia and Moravia (Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia)) Konstantin von Neurath closed all Czech universities and colleges, sent over 1200 students to concentration camps, and had nine students executed (on November 17). Teams from six countries entered the Challenge in 1932: Germany (15 crews), France (8 crews), Italy (8 crews), Poland (5 crews), Czechoslovakia (4 crews) and Switzerland (2 crews). English aviatrix Winifred Spooner entered the contest in the Italian team, being the only woman among the pilots. One Canadian (Canada) (John Carberry) and one Romanian pilot (Alexander Papana) entered the contest in the German team. The Slovak national team was formed following the breakup of Czechoslovakia, as the country was split into the Czech Republic and Slovakia. For years, the Czechs kept control over how the national team was run, and even had quotas instituted to ensure a minimal participation of Slovak players on the Czechoslovakian national team.

time depicting

on notorious Nazi Germany collaborator (Collaborationism) Louis Darquier de Pellepoix, and "Mr Comédie" (1980) criticizing Ayatollah Khomeini, who was in exile in France at the time, depicting him as a "torturer". "Les Brutes" (1980) describes the savage acts done by the Warsaw Pact military forces at the Prague Spring in Czechoslovakia, "H & D" (1979), with "H & D" standing for "Hôpital & Débiles" ("Asylum & Psychos"), accuses the Soviet Union and its secret services (KGB) of suppressing dissent by sending political opponents to psychiatric hospitals (Punitive psychiatry in the Soviet Union) under fake diagnoses. The first step towards an international structuring occurred in 1909, when England and Belgium agreed to recognize each other for international competitions, soon joined in by the French (France) federation. In 1924, the ''International Hockey Federation'' (FIH, ''Fédération Internationale de Hockey'') was founded in Paris, under the initiative of the French man, Paul Léautey, as a response to hockey's omission from the 1924 Paris Game (1924 Summer Olympics). The founding members were Austria, Belgium, Czechoslovakia, France, Hungary, Spain, and Switzerland. The development of the FIH owes a lot to the work of Réné George Frank, a Belgian, in the years after the Second World War until the 1970s. Men's hockey united under the FIH in 1970, when the Hockey Association joined and the International Rules Board became part of the FIH's structure. The '''Aero (Aero Vodochody) A.35''' was a Czechoslovakian airliner of the 1920s and 30s. Designed for long-range flight, with a transatlantic (Atlantic Ocean) crossing in mind, it saw service with CSA (Czech Airlines) although no such crossing was ever attempted. A conventional high-wing monoplane, it was a very modern design for its day in all but one respect – the cockpit still had open sides. An extra passenger could also be accommodated here, beside the pilot (Aviator). The '''Aero (Aero Vodochody) A.38''' was a Czechoslovakian biplane airliner of the 1920s and 30s. Following the relatively modern A.35 (Aero A.35), this aircraft was something of a throwback, marrying a fuselage derived from the A.35 to wings copied from the A.23 (Aero A.23). A few served with CSA (Czech Airlines), and others with French airline ''Compagnie Internationale de Navigation Aérienne''. These latter aircraft were powered by a French Gnome-Rhône engine instead. The '''Aero (Aero Vodochody) A.42''' was a Czechoslovakian bomber aircraft of 1929 that was only ever produced in prototype form. For its day, it was an advanced design, with a sleek monoplane configuration. However, the Czech Air Force was not satisfied with it for a number of reasons, in particular, the aircraft's take-off and landing rolls were felt to be excessively long, and crew complained about the cramped cabin (Cockpit). The air force suggested a set of modifications to Aero, including replacing the wooden wing with a metal one, but Aero discontinued development.

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&nbsp;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.
