Marie Moravcova was a Czech resistance fighter who, together with other members of the Moravec family, significantly helped the paratroopers in the assassination. She committed suicide by taking cyanide during her arrest by the Gestapo.


The assassination of Reinhard Heydrich and the events associated with it have shown the world that the Czechoslovaks are resisting oppression and tyranny and are determined to fight. A brave act that cost the highest price.

Soviet fighter pilot Mikhail Baranov of the 183rd Air Regiment leading a flight of four Yak-1 aircraft over Stalingrad, Russia ran headlong into a formation of 25 Messerschmitt Bf 109 fighters and took them on, shooting down three before running out of ammunition. Then skilfully manoeuvring his aircraft on to the tail of a fourth Bf 109 fighter, he closed in and cut off the fin of the enemy fighter with his propeller, afterwards making a successful forced landing.
