Students join commemorative demonstration for victims of communism

Around 700 people marched through the center of Prague in memory of the victims of communism on the 63rd anniversary of the execution of Milada Horáková, the democratic MP sentenced to death in a show trial. The organizers of the event also wanted to draw attention to the fact that the crimes of the communist regime are being forgotten. The event was attended by many middle and high school students, as well as people who were persecuted under communism, including political prisoners like Bishop Václav Malý and former hockey star Augustin Bubník.
