WWII Operation Anthropoid Tour of Prague
On this tour we will show you the places where “Operation Anthropoid” took place. As well as many places where other notable WWII historical events took place in Prague along the way.
World War II played a big part in the history of Prague’s struggle to be a democratic unified nation. After the Sudetenland was given to Hitler he continued on to conquer and occupy Prague until 1945. Hitler placed Reinhard Heydrich as the Reichsfuhrer of the Czech lands. He was a ruthless man who hated the Czech people and swore to persecute them according to Hitler’s wishes. He ruled with an iron fist with executions of dissidents against the German state.
In 1943 Czech paratroopers were trained in England to assassinate Heydrich called “Operation Anthropoid”. After a botched assassination attempt they escaped and were hidden in Prague until the Nazis found them. A huge stand-off took place until the paratroopers eventually committed suicide instead of being captured and tortured by the Nazis.
