what you saw ...

Prague

You took this photo of the memorial to Jan Palach who committed suicide in this spot in 1969 in a protest against Soviet occupation.

We were later to find out that the busy road at the top of Wenceslas Square was built after 1969 with the objective of enabling tanks to enter the square and suppress future demonstrations should the Stalinist leadership decide that they needed to do this.
