Recent history in brief
Czechoslovakia was occupied by Germany in World War II and was controlled by the Russians in the post-war communist era. In 1989, the people demonstratively convinced Russia to relinquish its control without a battle (today that event is called the "Velvet Revolution"). In 1993, Czechoslovakia peacefully split into two countries, the Czech Republic and Slovak Republic.
