Mr. Dubcek inspired the democratic reforms in Czechoslovakia in 1968. These reforms, called "socialism with a human face", led to the Warsaw pact invasion of Czechoslovakia in August, 1968. Shortly after, Mr. Dubcek was arrested, taken to Moscow and expelled from the Communist Party. Last fall he became chairman of his country’s parliament following a revolution in November. This is his first trip to the United States, during which he is receiving an honorary doctorate degree from American University. Professor Lustitg served as Mr. Dubcek’s translator. close
