Big History Fan & Successful Business Woman. My Personal Feelings on the Tragedy. Are, while Heydrich was a Very Evil Man. The Killing May have put a Stop to Him, & Changed History. However the Assailants got too Close to the Czech People. Who at great Risk Harboured them. To The Huge Cost to the Village of Lidice. The World Will Never Forget. Although there was informants. Raising the Village to the Ground. Killing Men, Women, Children & Animals. Burning Houses, Digging up Graves. Even Filming it. Begs Belief. Just Pure Evil !. First thing We See is " Silent Village ". Short Film by Humphrey Jennings. Used for UK Propaganda. Was Amazed at Quality of a 1940.s Film. Welsh Viewpoint was Interesting Too. Setting in a Welsh Mining Village. Good Welsh Singing, as you would Expect. My Grandfather was a Pit Forman. References to Keeping the Welsh Language Alive, also Relevant. Enjoyed, and did not even Know of the Films Existence.

Plus Work by Czech Documentary Film Maker, Jan Kaplan. Jan Based in London, makes International Renowned Films. Repeat Looped, 3 Screen Film. Repeating the Assassination of Heydrich. Images that Stick for Me. The Gun Jamming. Heydrichs SS3 Number Plate Merc. The Steep Praha Hill, and the Much Loved Praha Tram. With the Aid of Earphones. Watch Old News Reel.
