Heydrich gets ambushed

On the way back from finding the megalith in Dolny Chabry, we had to pass the corner where Heydrich was attacked in 1942. I have never stopped here to look around at the site even though I know the story very well and have been past the spot a thousand times. Neil knew about a plaque so we parked and after running through a maze of tunnels criss-crossing the highway, we finally found the spot. Strangely it is just down the street from the famous Kobylisy shooting range which is where hundreds of Czechs were subsequently executed in retribution for Heydrich's assassination. More at:
The latter site much more detailed
