Operation Anthropoid at the Wiener Library
A quick "thank you" to the Wiener Library (http://www.wienerlibrary.co.uk/default.aspx) for last night's private view of its temporary exhibition (http://www.wienerlibrary.co.uk/educationandoutreach/exhibition.aspx) on "Operation Anthropoid: Britain, Heydrich and the Holocaust", with last night's event including a very interesting talk by Richard Evans (http://www.richardjevans.com/). Operation Anthropoid was the code name for the assassination in 1942 of the Nazi leader Reinhard Heydrich, carried out by two Czechoslovak emigres serving in the British Special Operations Executive. An interesting, enjoyable event and my first visit to the Wiener Library, offering a reminder of how important its work is (http://m.ft.com/cms/s/2/f3380156-7b6f-11e0-ae56-00144feabdc0.html).
