Matchbox label made in Czechoslovakia 1949. The text on the labels reads:”IX congress of the KSC”. The Congress of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia (1921-1990) was formally the highest organ of the KSČ. At the Congress, the Central Committee was elected.
The Communist Party of Czechoslovakia was a communist and Marxist–Leninist political party in Czechoslovakia that existed between 1921 and 1992. The KSČ was the sole governing party in the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic though it was a leading party along with the Slovak branch and four other legally permitted non-communist parties. After its election victory in 1946, it seized power in the 1948 Czechoslovak coup d’état and established a one-party state allied with the Soviet Union. Nationalization of virtually all private enterprises followed, and a command economy was implemented.
