Pastor Jakub Trojan

Jakub Trojan - who was the former dean of the Protestant Theological Faculty of Charles University in Prague - at the grave of Jan Palach. Trojan was the priest who buried student Jan Palach in 1969 who committed self-immolation as a political protest against the end of the Prague Spring resulting from the 1968 invasion of Czechoslovakia by the Warsaw Pact armies. “In this cynical century in which we are often scared by others and others are scared by us, in a century in which we are often startled at our own small-mindedness, he made us ask a question that can make great people of us: What did I do for others, what is my heart like, what is my aim, and what is the highest priority in my life?”
