Testimony of Markéta Luskačová

“People must fight against the evil they feel equal to at that moment,” said the dying Jan Palach. He awakened the conscience of his fellow citizens in January 1969 – by self-immolation. Markéta Luskačová’s photographs show the funeral procession through the centre of Prague as a demonstration of resistance to the Soviet occupation of Czechoslovakia.
