Jan Palach

A talk about life of Jan Palach, a Czech student who set fire to himself on Wenceslaus Square in Prague on 16 January 1969 in protest at the reimposition of censorship and distribution of Moscow-promoted news.


Velehrad is the only place in the UK where there is a memorial to him, unveiled in 1978 by Viscount de l‘Isle V.C.


The talk will be in English and there will be photographs and extracts from articles and books on display.
