Two on a motorbike – Lidice remembered

10th May 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Follow an English husband and Czech wife on their route from Cholmondeley Castle to Stoke-on-Trent, then on to Lidice and Prague.

Hear about their encounters on the way and retrace some of the steps by Jan Kubiš and Jozef Gabčík in Operation Anthropoid which resulted in the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich but also the tragedy of Lidice and beyond.

They will also recount how John Peers’ father’s visit to Lidice in 1946 brought John and Jiřina together, nearly 80 years later, when they had to overcome the 1,000 mile gap between them.

Now they split their time between the two countries and believe that they have the best of both worlds.

BCSA members enjoy free entry but registration is essential see Eventbrite link below.

Non-members £10, full-time students £5.

Refreshments will be provided.
