Demonstration on 28th October 1939

“At first it happened on October 28th – there were demonstrations in Prague. Of course, for us the students, participation in demonstrations was like homework. I was at Wenceslas Square. We were wearing ribbons in the national colours, shouting… we were young, in short. And suddenly German soldiers began storming the place, they were coming from the direction of Karlín, they probably had their barracks there. Most of them were SS members and they began arresting people. They were taking those who were wearing the ribbons and pushing them into cars and taking them away. When we saw it, I retreated to Krakovská Street. And I heard the sound of shooting. They shot one of our students into his stomach.”
