Photographer's Note

Prague,
Whilst in Prague on our short break I made it a point to seek this small memorial out. Here, at the church of St Cyril & St. Methodious, unfolded a siege in the Second World War. Paratroopers along with some members of the resistance had assassinated Reinhard Heydrich, the Nazi Governor. Cornered in the crypt of the church and surrounded by German troops they took their own lives rather than be captured. The bullet holes are still there in the stonework. A moment in history, May, 1942. So often passed by without a thought.
We took a brief moment to think of these brave people.
There was a film made of the incident. Which I can't recall the name of. If anyone takes the trouble to read this, and recalls it. Perhaps they could let me know?
