I went on this tour with family members who are World War II buffs and knew the history of this covert war operation that led to the assassination of Reinhold Heydrich, a high ranking Nazi administrator. I knew nothing about it beforehand but the guide was quite dramatic and pulled us into the story taking us to important locations where the operation was carried out and finally ended.

We passed by this Monument on the way to the Terezin Concentration Camp which is about one hour out of Prague. Our guide was great and narrated the whole story of what happened here. The gun jammed and one of the group sent a grenade under the car which exploded and sent fragments of metal and horsehair upwards into Heydrich which ultimately killed him around 10 days later.
The 7 soldiers were betrayed 10 days later in the Crypt of the St Methodius Cathedral and attacked by 800 soldiers and all fought until their last bullet when they took their own lives.
Many whole families including their children who helped them to remain at large were captured and sent to Mauthausen Concentration Camp where they were killed in October 1942

I wasn't aware of Operation Anthropoid prior to my Prague visit - what a great and heroic story. This memorial to those 7 men is simply a hidden gem and stands out as one of my favorite stops in Prague. An absolute must for anyone with any historical interest whatsoever.

This memorial is a bit tricky to find (and stop) as it is on a very busy street. That being said, it is part of a much bigger story related to the killing of Heydrich by the Czech Resistance during WWII. Add the following to this story: Lidice (village close to Vaclav Havel International Airport). St. Cyril and St. Methodius Cathedral in Prague. This is where the paratroopers too refuge after the attempted assignation of Heydrich. Very moving and nice memorial in the Crypt of the church.

Watched move about Operation Anthropoid before trip to Prague. Fascinating story. Visiting the church and museum was a great follow up. Very informative and interesting to see the location of the events. A must see. No charge for visiting.

Not the easiest of places to get to, however well worth it to see a memorial to brave men. Didn’t go how they had planned it and they fought to the end. Beautiful memorial, very fitting

My sons girlfriend is from the Czech Republic and we watched the Operation Anthropoid film a week before our trip to Prague. To my shame I didn't know the significance of these events in 1942. As such it was so humbling to visit this emotive spot where the courageous efforts of these men would have such a significant impact on so many lives in the next three years of ww2. Tomorrow we visit the church where they took refuge and ultimately sacrificed their lives. I will pray tomorrow for them as I did today.

This is the place where Rheinhard Heydrich was assassinated. He was the number 2 man of de SS, behind Himmler.
The attack was certainly not executed perfectly, but fortunately the target died after a week. This prevented him from doing much more harm to people who resisted the opinion and evil operations of the Third Reich.

This was one of my favourite things I did while I was in Prague. I would recommend anyone who is even vaguely interested in history to go on this tour, it was truly fascinating!

The commemoration of the exploits of the parachutists at the spot where the deed was done on 27th May 1942. The metal triangular column is weathering (rusting nicely) with three parachutists on top with arms out spread. Unfortunately no photo opportunity for us as we driving along the highway but is easily spotted. I suspect one for history buffs only as it's a bit off the tourist trail.
