    Default 75th Anniversary - Occupation of Cz

    Yesterday, the 15th March 2014, marked the 75th anniversary of the German occupation of the Czech lands. During a snowstorm, the German forces entered Prague and took control of the city and Czech territory - a grip that would last until the final moments of the great European conflict. Hitler made his one and only visit to Prague that day, signing the official creation of the Protektorat Böhmen und Mähren (Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia) the following day.
