The Christian Peace Conference was an international organization based in Prague and founded in 1958 by Josef Hromádka, a pastor who had spent the war years in the USA and moved back to Czechoslovakia when the war ended. Hromádka was a member of the Bureau of the World Peace Council.[1] He was not a Marxist but the Christian Peace Conference often endorsed the position taken by eastern-bloc governments. [2] It is said to have received $210,000 from Soviet sources.[3]
