Commemorative event marks 81st anniversary of Heydrich’s assassination

A commemorative marking the 81st anniversary of the assassination of the Nazi governor of Bohemia and Moravia in 1942 took place in Prague on Saturday.

Several dozen people gathered at the Anthropoid memorial in the district of Libeň near the spot where two Czechoslovak paratroopers Jan Kubiš and Jozef Gabčík opened fire on Heydrich’s car.

A historic tram commemorating the sites and events associated with Operation Anthropoid will be riding through the streets of Prague on Saturday between the Střešovice depot and Karlovo náměstí square.
