Action D

"It is remarkable that family members, especially the wives of detainees, remained completely calm, accepted the detention of the spouses calmly, so that their actions affected our authorities in the sense that they were prepared for this circumstance and that they explain their detainees' detention more as honors (sic!) than as punishment. "

Part of the evaluation report of the Ministry of the Interior of April 1949, concerning action D

Bloody Spring of 1945 (1)

The real history of our state in the twentieth century is basically not taught in schools until 1918. It also ceased to be politically correct to show what happened during the war here in the Protectorate and what happened after the war. In particular, any notes, photographs, or documents about Nazi crimes evaporated like steam over a pot. What a difference, for example, from Germany, where exhibitions are held on the crimes of Nazism, on the crimes of the Wehrmacht, children learn what Nazism or the Holocaust were…

Bloody Spring of 1945 (12)

The first defeat of the idea of Great Germany Three most successful Austrian lies:
1. Mozart was Austrian
2. Hitler was German
3. Austria-Hungary was broken by the Czechs

Bloody Spring of 1945 (2)

In order to further investigate what actually happened, we need to ask ourselves the basic questions that the world has known since ancient Rome and is used by forensic scientists today.

Bloody Spring of 1945 (8)

After the previous chapter, it would be "politically correct" to write something about those "good Germans" who did not participate in Nazi crimes and tried to either oppose or simply survive this terrible time.

Bloody Spring of 1945 (9)

It is not in anyone's power to describe and list all the places of horror that Nazism has brought to the world. Even the description of what happened in the original territory of Czechoslovakia is frightening and extensive, that it goes beyond today's ideas. To show the horror of that time, I will focus in this section only on a small, selected section of crimes, both spatially and temporally.

Did Israel commit war crimes during Operation Cast Lead?

Operation Cast Lead began on December 27, 2008 and lasted about a month. It was a retaliatory action aimed at preventing further blasting of Israeli territory from the Gaza Strip. The state of Israel was, as usual, again accused of war crimes (ie, deliberately attacking Gazan civilians, civilian objects and civilian infrastructure). As in the case of the "Janin Massacre" or the "Palestinian Massacre on the Beach in Gaza". All these accusations pursue one goal - to denigrate Israel as widely as possible. Now I will try to recapitulate only some of the misinformation that has circled the world.

gen. JUDr. Bohuslav Ečer

On the table with the designation of the Brno tram number 1 and 3 we can read the name of the final station: Bystrc, Ečerova. However, few people know what Mr. Ečer did that one of Brno's streets is named after him . JUDr. Bohuslav Ečer was an important personality in his time, who gained considerable respect not only in Czechoslovakia but also abroad. The ideas he fought for are the cornerstone of today's international criminal law. Nevertheless, he remained forgotten for forty years of the communist regime, and even after 1989, his person is neglected.

General Bonifác Káňa

Soldier of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, Serbia, Russia and Czechoslovakia. Legionary, general and prisoner and victim of the Gestapo.

Genocide in public international law on the example of Tibet

In its preamble, the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide identifies genocide as a crime under international law rejected by the civilized world, which has caused great loss to humanity in all periods of history and the eradication of which requires international cooperation.

Genocide in public international law on the example of Tibet

Already at the time of the approval of the Convention, there were voices that the definition of genocide as it appeared in the final text was disproportionately narrow. Among the groups to which the Convention provides protection, in the opinion of many, other groups should have appeared, such as cultural, social, but especially political.

Genocide in public international law on the example of Tibet

Crime without prosecutor and judge.
The debatable Genocide Convention failed to give a sufficiently precise and authoritative definition of genocide, another lack of the Convention, the absence of institutional and coercive mechanisms for genocide, directly threatened the main purpose of the Convention, ie to prevent and punish this serious crime.

Genocide in public international law on the example of Tibet

The practical implementation ( or rather non-implementation ) of the Convention on Genocide has become sad evidence of the inability of the international community to deal effectively with violations of even the most basic rules of international law. States have never decided to intervene vigorously, even at a time when genocide could still be prevented, or at a time when tens of thousands of people were already dying in genocidal massacres, and even when the perpetrators of the crime of genocide had already been ousted and captured and punished. . Instead of a real solution to the problem of genocide, the international community has usually been alibi-satisfied in stating " serious concern " and providing humanitarian assistance to the victims.

Genocide in public international law on the example of Tibet

Prevent, not just punish. The establishment of international criminal tribunals to punish crimes committed in the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda has reopened the question of the creation of a permanent international criminal court and the development of a code of international criminal law.

Heroes who didn't fit (1)

Originally, it was supposed to be just an article about the unveiling of one memorial plaque. But then it turned out that it would probably be small, even in relation to those who were left with only letters engraved in marble. Remember living, brave people. They don't even have a grave. Their ashes were dumped in the dump of the Mauthausen concentration camp and on roads in the surrounding area. Of course, it is a memorial plaque to 294 heroes of the Heydrich's dead revenge (photo: Jiří Wagner) writing long. Who doesn't want to, don't read it. But everyone should ...

Heroes who didn't fit (2)

In order to best clarify our own history and get rid of all the deposits and propaganda purposeful lies, the study also uses documents created by the "other party" - the Nazis ...

Heroes who didn't fit (3)

After the killing of Heydrich, terror began in the Czech lands that had not been practiced here since the 17th century. However, the Nazis were fundamentally mistaken in assessing its impact. The obsession that Hitler obviously suffered towards the Czech nation and personally towards Beneš led in its political consequences to significantly negative results for the Germans themselves ...

Occupational killer without claim to question mark

Such is the title of the film ( almost one and a half hours long ) about Karel Vaš, a monster who died a few weeks ago. He lived to the glorious age of 96 years, in stark contrast to the fate of the many whose lives he shortened - in the role of informant, investigator, torturer, prosecutor, judge, de facto executioner, to the last breath of a rock-solid communist fanatic, without a doubt about the correctness of all his doing.

Uprising in the Warsaw Ghetto

Before and during World War II, the Nazis set up a number of ghettos and extermination camps. The largest ghettos were located in Warsaw and Łódz. There were 200,000 Jews in the Łódz ghetto, of whom 45,000 died of starvation, fatigue and exhaustion. The Warsaw ghetto was equally harsh and inhumane, killing 83,000 Jews in less than twenty months. From 1942, the deportation of Polish Jews to death camps began.
