Czech History Exhibit in Love Library North until Sept 27

Heydrich shows his presence in Love Library
The Czech Komensky Club and the UNL Czech Language Program from the University of Nebraska are sponsoring an exhibit on loan from the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Washington D.C. entitled: The Heydrich Exhibit The exhibit presents the political career of Reinhard Heydrich (7 March 1904 – 4 June 1942).
The exhibit is located on the second floor of Love Library North, from August 27th to September 27th.
Known as the “Butcher of Prague,” Heydrich was a high-ranking Nazi official and close collaborator with Adolph Hitler, Heinrich Himmler and Adolph Eichmann. He presided at the Nazi Wannsee Conference at which the final solution for all European Jews was finalized and put into motion. He was appointed Deputy Reich’s Protector of Bohemia and Moravia in September of 1941, the territories occupied by Nazi Germany in 1939.
On May 27, 1942, aided by the Czech resistance, a team of Czech paratroopers trained in Britain attacked and mortally wounded him. A week later Heydrich died from his wounds. In retaliation the Nazi’s annihilated the villages of Lidice and Ležáky.
The sponsoring organizations wish to express their gratitude to John Fiala of the Nebraska Czech Language Foundation for acquiring the exhibit and scheduling its displays throughout the Midwest.
