Jan Kvapil: Zapomenuté osobnosti olomouckého kraje / Jan Kvapil: Forgotten personalities of Olomouc region

In 2019, we commemorate several anniversaries of Czech history. Jan Kvapil’s lecture focuses on Olomouc personalities who were part of such historical moments. The Memory of Nation, a project of the non-profit organization Post Bellum, commemorates people from the Olomouc region who have been actively involved in our history at the national and international level. One such person was Jan Opletal, a student who was mortally wounded during an anti-Nazi demonstration in November 1939. A remembrance in his honor led to the closure of Czech universities with 1,200 students being sent to concentration camps.
