Saturday marked the 70th anniversary of the still murky death of Jan Masaryk. The son of Czechoslovakia's founder Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk, Jan Masaryk was foreign minister in the Czech government in exile in the UK and retained that post until 10 March 1948, when he was found dead beneath the window of his third-floor apartment at the Foreign Ministry's Černín Palace.
