Summary/Abstract: The presented monograph is a result of a meeting, where the Slovak journalists and historians came together in order to discuss the events of 1968 and the indispensable role of mass media in the reform process in Czechoslovakia, which is generally known as the „Prague Spring”. While the historians were stressing both the importance and the contribution of Slovak and Czech media for the evolution and the take-off of the reform process in the cultural context of the 1960s and the significance of historical milestones of the year 1968, the journalists-eyewitnesses of these events were remembering their own evaluation of the unforgettable atmosphere of that time.
