Prague 68


Author: Paul Goldsmith, 2010. 73 p.

The book is a photographic document of the August days 1968 when the Prague Spring was thwarted by Soviet occupation. At that time, Paul Goldsmith was a student backpacking across Europe before returning to attend college in California. He took these photos over the three critical August days while visiting Prague. After he left Europe, the photographs were tucked in a portfolio for several decades until a “lunchtime conversation” in 2009 resulted in the publication of this book.

Several of the photographs were purchased by the Chicago Art Institute, The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, or the house of Mahatma Ghandi in South Africa. They were also displayed in several exhibitions in the US and abroad, including the Czech Republic. 21 of the photos were also used in another publication edited by a Czech journalist and historian, Jozef Pazderka: Invaze 1968 – Rusky Pohled (Invasion of 1968 – A Russian Outlook).
