It took almost 2 years to finally receive permission from our government for my 1 year fellowship in the US. The relaxation of communist politics in Czechoslovakia by Alexander Dubcek leading to the so-called “Prague Spring” helped. My 16 year-old daughter, Eva, who studied at the English high school in Prague went with me. We got permission from our government and received our US visas early in March. We left Prague for Portland on March 15, 1967. My wife, Bohunka, and our 14 year-old son, Jon, stayed in Prague. But with the continuation of Prague Spring, they were eventually allowed to join us in the US in October 1967.
