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.

In the past 30 days, people read 2664 pages of my book through Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited. For the first time, United Kingdom is leading before USA and… I don’t know what Canada is doing. C’mon, guys! The Corner of Death is a World War 2 novel containing lots of interesting info about the war, Czechoslovakia and the Eastern Front. Maybe it’s a bit difficult to get through the Introduction, but I think it’s worth it.

Czechoslovak medics training in Buzuluk, Soviet Union (now Russia) in 1942. In battle, soldiers must have often wondered, whether they were still alive or ended up in heaven after seeing our beautiful medics. Medics, nurses, doctors, cooks, etc. were as important on battlefields as any other.

„One must fight evil he can handle.“ Words of Jan Palach, who was dying in great pain after he set himself on fire on Vaclav square in Prague 50 years ago. Palach wanted to wake the whole country up from its apathy after it was invaded by its allies in 1968 and occupied by the Soviet Union. His funeral turned into another large demonstration, but things simply did not change. Palach influenced the next generation of Czechoslovaks, who went into the streets and toppled the communist regime in 1989.
