What a holiday today 17
Holiday 17: International Students Day
International Students’ Day was introduced on 17th 1946, and this happened during the World Student Congress in Prague. The event is set as a tribute to the memory of Czech patriotic students.
For many modern people, Youth Day is associated exclusively with fun, romance, vivid emotions, and it must be said that the holiday is celebrated in most countries.
However, its meaning is somewhat different. His story began during the Second World War in Czechoslovakia.
28 of 1939 the country was occupied by the fascists, and the Prague teachers together with the students staged a demonstration in order, in spite of all the events that took place in the life of society, to celebrate the anniversary of the formation of Czechoslovakia.
But the units of the invaders began to do everything to stop the demonstration, and as a result, student Yang Opletal, who was studying at the medical faculty, was shot dead. 15 his funeral turned into a real protest, as a result of which a large number of Czech students were arrested.
17 fascists surrounded the student dormitories, while they were still sleeping, arrested more than 1,200 students and sent them to the Sachsenhausen concentration camp. Nine activists and students who took part in the movement were executed without trial in Ruzyne, one of the districts of Prague.
All educational institutions thereafter, on the orders of Hitler, were closed and began to work only after the end of the war.
It is in memory of this event that Youth Day is celebrated 17. Recreational activities are usually not held.
