Czechoslovakians Listening to Announcement of Communist Takeover

Original caption: 2/26/1948-Prague, Czechoslovakia- Packing Prague's Old City Square to hear an address by Premier Klement Gottwald, Czechoslovakians listen to the fateful words that marked the beginning of the Communist seizure of Czechoslovakia. Gottwald's speech, demanding that President Benes accept the resignations of twelve Czech ministers, was the first in a rapid series of events that out the Communists in power just a few weeks short of nine years since Hitler's hordes overran Czechoslovakia.
