What you'll do

This is a great experience for groups or team-buildings interested in history and Europe and World War 2.

Witness the crucial events of those dark time in Prague during the Nazi occupation.

We will see what preceded the terror of the Butcher of Prague - Reinhard Heydrich, his assassination and the terrible aftermath. It is the main topic of this lecture, but not only. You get all the facts about WW2 in Czechia

With the help of my own and historical photographs, illustrations and video footage we will:

▶︎ find out why the war even started in Europe and how daily life has changed in the German Protectorate

▶︎ understand the role of the SS-Obergruppenfuehrer Heydrich, the man with the iron heart, as Hitler himself used to call him

▶︎ appreciate the role and importance of the brave Czech resistance – the ordinary people who decided to save their homeland on their own

▶︎ cover the Operation Anthropoid from the very beginning until the tragedies that followed the death of the "blonde beast"

▶︎ see some actual historical videos/photographs and compare them with the interpretations of the modern cinematography

Highly recommend this experience for history buffs and early learners alike! Jana was generous with her time and provided an informative, insightful and interactive history lesson. She answered all questions in depth and succinctly. I learned a lot in a short amount of time and feel very grateful and fortunate to have learned from Jana. I cannot recommend this experience enough and look forward to taking Jana's in-person tours when we can travel safely again.

Substantive telling of the history of WW2 in and around Prague . . with details about the how and why Hitler wanted to over take this country (hint they build weapons there). . Enjoyed it throughly.

Jana's explanation was concise and very easy to follow, even if you are not that well versed with Czech or WWII history. I very much appreciated the historical photos and videos that were shown that added so much depth to the whole storyline. I have done close to 30 Airbnb Online Experiences and this is definitely in my Top 3. I would recommend this for everyone, especially history lovers!

Jana is an amazing instructor and possesses deep knowledge of the events of the era. Her presentation was well-researched and included archival footage and photos that made the experience come to life. She answered every question I had and offered additional resources for my upcoming Prague trip. I highly recommend both Jana and this course to any fellow WWII junkies, history geeks, or anyone with even a passing interest in the topic: I can assure you that the entertainment and educational value are about equally high due to Jana's mastery of the subject and showmanship.
