American Czechoslovaks in the First Resistance

American compatriots were also involved in the first Czechoslovak foreign resistance movement during the World War I. Their central organization was the Czech National Association, bringing together liberal and Protestant Czechs. The Czech National Social Association J. V. Frič was founded with the support of the Czech National Social Party. A very active part of the resistance was the American Sokol, Slovak Sokol and the National Association of Czech Catholics also participated in the resistance. The relationship with the resistance of the Czech department of the Socialist Party in America was more complicated.
