Let me tell you stories that affected thousands of people in our country during the dark years of WW2. Stories of Nazi occupation and Hitler’s arrival to the Prague Castle in March 1939. Stories of the Czech Jews deported to concentration camps and ghettos. Probably each country has its own “big story” that shows the bravery of the nation.
In Czech lands it is the story of Reinhard Heydrich, a high-ranking German Nazi, who became a governor of Czechs in 1941. His arrival to Prague was marked by hundreds of executions and transports of Jews, therefore the Czechoslovakian government-in-exile in London prepared a mission to kill him. They called it the “Operation Anthropoid” and two soldiers, one Czech and one Slovakian, were chosen to execute it.
Eventually they succeeded and Heydrich died in Prague in June 1942. What followed after this assassination? What happened to soldiers and what price the Czechs had to pay? Join me on the tour!
