I have some reservations regarding the importance of the 1848 Spring of
For us, and for most of the East European countries, the main historic event
was the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact. I am not sure whether in spite of the
pact Hitler would not go ahead with "Operation Barbarossa" but for us it was
the beginning of the end.....

The June 28 1940 was just a station on the way down.
   Significant and dramatic but just a station.
   What really started the change was the 1848 Spring of Nations
  When nations wanted freedom and self rule.
     The Habsburgs being a multi nation empire this meant the end
   of the Empire.
     In 1919 the Habsburg , the German and the Russian Empires became
       The Habsburgs also discomposed.
         The one year occupation of N. Bukovina by the Soviets was dramatic
      us but was not a shattering event.
       What happened in Nov 1919 was a much more significant milestone.
      For us 1940 is more dramatic maybe because we witnessed it.
         But just a whistle stop on our way down..
