Events held in memory of the paratroopers who died after killing Reinhard Heydrich

A number of events were held in Prague to honour the memory of the Czechoslovak paratroopers who assassinated Nazi governor Reinhard Heydrich and died after an SS siege of the Church of Saints Cyril and Methodius in Prague's Resslova Street 80 years ago today. The brave act of resistance was marked by a parachute jump by army paratroopers, a church service and a commemorative ceremony in Resslova street. The event was attended by the German Ambassador to the Czech Republic Andreas Künne who said the act of resistance was a light in the darkness of Nazi dictatorship.
