Photographer's Note

I TOOK THIS PHOTOGRAPH at the Olsanske cemetery (hrbitov). It is estimated that over a million people are buried here although the actual number of graves is far less. It was originally created for the victims of the 1680 plague and, whilst many well-known people are laid to rest here, perhaps the most famous is Jan Palach the young Czech student who set himself alight in protest at the Soviet occupation in 1969.
