As the 50 anniversary of Jan Palach’s self-immolation draws near, the National Museum has released details on a project it has been preparing for over a year. The house where the Czechoslovak martyr grew up is to open as a special Palach museum in August. Next Wednesday it will be exactly 50 years since the 20-year-old student set himself alight in protest at apathy in the face of the Soviet occupation of Czechoslovakia.
