Heroes’ memorials demanded for Czech assassins of Holocaust chief

The assassination of Reinhard Heydrich is recognised as one of the most audacious operations of the second world war. But Ján Kubiš and Josef Gabcík, the two British-trained Czechoslovak paratroopers credited with killing one of Hitler’s most fanatical henchmen and chief mastermind of the Holocaust, are believed to be buried in Prague in an unmarked grave.

    the thshechs are a small people. for their limited nmbre and
    the occupations from larger empires they sutained
    not unhurt, they gave the world great
    man, i mean realy great.
    Prag stod up to USSR, Prag organised Israels survival 1948,
    Prag had an university, most of Europ was iliterat.
    i dont know if a “beter” burrial place gives
    the heroes anything now they are
    dead and resting in tshech
    ground but sure their
    deeds deserve
    memory, so their death will be a blessing for thous they died for.

    Most of the 15,000 Czechs murdered in reprisal for the killing of the nazi filth were likely slated for eventual extermination over time in any case. He apparently died slowly in great agony from infection via the horsehair seat stuffing blown into his body by the grenade blast.

    That must have later given hitler a few anxious thoughts when his own appointment with an assassin’s explosion came and went.
