The church in which the men who killed Heydrich were hiding when they were betrayed.

Same view at the time of the seige of the Church.
Image
The steps down which the SS attempted to storm the crypt.
Image
Another looking towards the steps , a stone was blown away to expose the steps and after several bloody attempts to storm the crypt the SS resolved to end it a different way.
Image
The openning through which the SS ordered the Prague fire brigade to flood the crypt , the hole in the wall was made by the anthropoids who attempted to break into the sewers to escape.
Image
Karel Curda who betrayed them attempted to make his ex comrades surrender - they shot themselves rather than give up
The Prague police under German orders flood the crypt.
Image
The memorial to the men killed in the Church and the Crypt.
Image
Another view of the memorial.

They are indeed good photos, there are some in the world however who may question this remark,

The openning through which the SS ordered the Prague fire brigade to flood the crypt , the hole in the wall was made by the anthropoids who attempted to break into the sewers to escape.

John on what grounds might some question the remarks quoted ?

To me of all of Hitler's "inner circle" Heydrich is by far the most interesting , he had many qualities which can be admired, he was an intelligent , physically brave , a gifted sportsman and cultured individual - balance this against his life time achievements and it is really Jekyll and Hyde.

Mairtin , I stayed just five minutes walk from the Church near the "Dancing House" , that ugly modern art statement at the botom of the street opposite the bridge.
Would like to go back there again for a long weekend to see some places I missed - Prague castle being one of them.

Ah , I see - the operation to kill Heydrich was called "Anthropoid" , no reflection on the men themselves.
