Thanks for input folks. I think i was lucky to obtain these pics as a group. Heydrich "The Hangman of Prague",had he survived could've altered the course of the war. He had more nous than Hitler & was said to be his natural successor. Stewy
Brilliant set of paperwork... jealous to the bone
Interesting story about the widow and his bloody uniform. I'm surprised that she would have actually been given this back after his death. If it is still around - it should be in a museum where the story of this evil monster can be shown to all.
As bad as it is....I bet that torn uniform would command big bucks today....whereas a lot of people would be more inclined to spit on it - collectors would be interested in it for it's historical link to ww2.
The drive out to the fleamarket outside Prague took you by the directional sign for "Lidice", the village wiped out as part of the reprisal for Heydrich's assassination.
In the good old days, in the late 80's and early 90's, there used to be a fair amount of Nazi material to be found there. My SS Reiterstandarte came from there.
She's his daughter for God's sake....of course I know what she'd say to me.....and the fact that she's his daughter makes it completely understandable. Who would want to call their dad a monster.....but then again - we have to call a spade a spade.
