Jan Kubis & Josef Gabcik were hiding from the Nazis in a church basement when they heard about the wholesale destruction of Lidice. Both wept and felt responsible, as if they'd shot each villager themselves, but they had known Nazi reprisals would occur. What they couldn't foresee was the level of brutality visited upon Lidice and its inhabitants.

Jan KUBIŠ (24.6.1913-18.6.1942)
