On this day, 77 years ago, Nazis wiped out the Czech village of Lidice. All men were shot, women ended up in concentration camps, few children were sent away for the so called Germanization and the rest of the children were gassed to death.

75 years ago, Czechs and Slovaks were bleeding and dying on the shores of Normandy, while fighting for USA. Czechoslovak aviators from the Czechoslovak Fighter Wing were covering them from above. 6th June is a great day to remember.

Happy Victory in Europe Day! 9th May is the true V-E Day, because on this day at 10AM, the key Prague Offensive ended and with it also all major German resistance ceased. The last European WW2 battle was fought onthe 12th May in southern Czechia, the Battle of Slivice, where the Red Army faced a fanatic unit of the SS and Americans joined the Battle with artillery fire. Local German resistance ceased in Europe completely in the later weeks. Czechs, Slovaks and Rusyns should do more to educate the world about the fighting and suffering in Prague and Czechia and the world should honor their Czechoslovak allies and celebrate the correct day.

Monument and cemetery in the Slovak village of Tokajik, which is the last resting place of 32 civilians that were murdered by a Nazi commando in November 1944. The village of Tokajik was burned to the ground and the massacred civilians were not even buried by the Nazis.

Alice Masaryková was a Czechoslovak teacher, sociologist, politician, feminist, antifascist, anticommunist and the daughter of the first Czechoslovak President, Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk. Alice Masaryková founded and led the Czechoslovak Red Cross and after her mother died, she became de facto First Lady of Czechoslovakia, while helping build a modern and prosperous country with strong diplomatic ties with the West. When her homeland was ruled by Nazis and later Communists, Alice lived in exile and spoke out against these regimes. We should never forget about our heroes!

Exactly 3 years ago, Google honored Františka Plamínková by reminding people about the anniversary of her birthday. Františka Plamínková was a Czech socialist politician and feminist that became world known for her fight for women’s rights. In September 1938, she sent an open letter to Adolf Hitler accusing him of lies and injustice. When Czechoslovak antifascists killed the Nazi war criminal Reinhard Heydrich, the 67 year old Františka Plamínková was arrested and executed without charge or trial at the Kobylisy Shooting Range in Prague along with hundreds of Czech patriots. If you want to find out more about Nazi crimes against Czechs and Slovaks, read my novel, The Corner of Death.

Generals Ludvík Svoboda, Karel Klapálek, Antonín Hasal and Bohumil Boček are carrying a coffin with their friend and another General, Jaroslav Vedral, the highest ranking Czechoslovak officer that was killed during World War 2. Vedral led the First Brigade (in the Battle of the Dukla Pass), which successfully penetrated the Carpathian Mountains and crossed the Polish-Slovak state border. Vedral’s jeep ran onto a land mine and he was buried right at the Dukla Pass.
