Where he­roes were made

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

JOHN STE­WART’S let­ter (Let­ters, Au­gust 31) is a timely re­minder of the role of Ari­saig House (Au­gust 24) as a Spe­cial Op­er­a­tions Ex­ec­u­tive (SOE) train­ing school. This is where Jozef Gabcík and Jan Ku­biš pre­pared for Op­er­a­tion An­thro­poid, which re­sulted in the death in Prague in 1942 of Rein­hard Hey­drich, so-called Re­ich­spro­tek­tor of Bo­hemia and Mo­ravia.

There is a memo­rial to the Czech and Slo­vak agents of the SOE at Ari­saig and the press has re­cently re­ported moves to re­cover the re­mains of Gabcík and Ku­biš from a mass grave and to give them a he­roes’ rest­ing place. Sean El­lis’s new fea­ture film An­thro­poid is due for re­lease in the UK on Septem­ber 9. Lord Ste­wart, by email
