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

Don‘t hesitate to contact me for a new date or time if you are looking for a private group of friends/family members, I will do my best to make it work for you!

We talk about World War 2, some of the content might not be suitable for sensitive people and children.

Jana is an experienced historian and wonderful storyteller. She provided a great experience for my father and I to learn about Prague during World War II. Jana also included some follow up materials for us to continue to learn more. It was a nice way to spend part of the morning and allowed us to 'leave' our current location to explore something new.

This is an OUTSTANDING experience! You leave this presentation with a deeper understanding and appreciation for what the Czech people endured during World War II. Jana is extremely knowledgeable, articulate, and personable. She also shares some of her family's story about their struggle with the Nazi occupation and interment in one of the Concentration Camps. It's an experience that you won't forget!

This is an outstanding Experience, not just for people who are just learning about history, but also for history buffs who want to learn some of the more unusual stories about World War 2. Jana is extremely knowledgeable and cares greatly about the history of her city; she also listened carefully to my questions and interests and customized her presentation to what I was most interested in. The videos and photos were good complements to her comments. I found it a fascinating discussion, and the time went by quickly! After the talk she kindly provided a list of books and films that will help me continue learning.

This experience was offered as an elective to high school students at our school. Here's what the students wrote after the experience:**Thank you! I liked how you discussed the modern remnants (crown jewels, memorials, monuments) of the war. I would have liked to learn more about Soviet liberation/transition.**Thank you for giving this talk on Prague's history at Intersession. I personally found what you talked about to be really interesting, and the way you presented it was really engaging.**Learning about the role Prague played in World War II and how the Nazis used Czechoslovakia was so fascinating.

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.
