political trial, Milada Horakova, show trial

Czechoslovakia, Prague - 1950. Show trial of "Milada Horakova and company" (12 others). Firearms, ammunition and swastika were items among planted evidence the Communists used against innocent citizens. The fact that Milada Horakova, Nestaval, Peska and Dundr were inprisoned in concentration camps for their anti fascist activities did not help their cause and they were tried in a show trial on trumped up charges. Interrogation were carried out according to Soviet advisers when physical and psychological torture was used on all prisoners. Despite protests by Albert Einstein, Winston Churchill, Eleanor Roosevelt and many others Milada Horakova, mother of 16 year old daughter, was executed by hanging on June 27, 1950. Alltogether 639 Czechoslovak citizens were tried in such show trials and 10 of them received the death penalty.Photo: Accused Frnatisek Preucil talks to microphone.
