This year’s Struggle for Freedom and Democracy Day will commemorate not only the 30th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution of 1989 but also the 80th anniversary of the occupying Nazi forces executing Czech student leaders and a professor in 1939. The capital city won’t see one central celebration on November 17. Instead, events will be spread across Prague as well as throughout the Czech Republic. This year’s biggest celebration is organized by the umbrella group Freedom Festival.
