Plaque installed at birthplace of Milada Horáková

A new plaque was unveiled to Milada Horáková – a politician executed by the Communists – in Prague on Tuesday. The new memorial is on the building where she was born, on the corner of the streets Rumunská and Bělehradská.

Milada Horáková was put to death in a cruel and inhumane manner in 1950 after being found guilty in a show trial. She was the only woman executed by the Communists in Czechoslovakia.
