Another Pankrac guillotine tale

Post by Pete26 » 12 Mar 2019 04:39

https://books.google.com/books?id=8EPoA ... al&f=false

Read pages 175 through 179 of this book. Although most of the information is correct, there are some strange statements here, namely that beheaded bodies were hung from the hooks of the hanging beam like slabs of meat and the next victim to be led to the guillotine would see this before being beheaded. This looks like another invented tale, published somewhere which the author copied, much like the poker like tool tale where the tool was supposedly used to scoop up severed heads from the head basket and show them to the execution committee members sitting in the next room. The tool was actually used to pull down the cable hook on the guillotine so the sledge could be raised again. Also, Installation of Pankrac guillotine was not inspired by the French guillotine. Germany already had a long history of using its own guillotines for execution, and the Pankrac guillotine was just another Tegel type guillotine installed in this new central execution site. A similar guillotine was installed at Vienna Regional Court late in 1938.

And Pankrac executioner Alois Weiss did not live comfortably to be 80 years old. He died in 1969 at the age of 62 and under rather impoverished circumstances.

The page numbers are handwritten in small numbers on top of each page. I believe that chapter 10 starts on page 175 (that page number is on the bottom of page).

Jan Sýkora

Post by Pete26 » 16 Mar 2019 05:24

Jan Sýkora was guillotined in Ploetzensee prison on 16 December 1942.
Jan Sýkora se narodil 23. července 1876 právě v Komorně. Vyučil se truhlářem. V roce 1901 odjel do Londýna, kde si zřídil českou restauraci a pomocí F. Kopeckého založil českou kolonii. Po vypuknutí 1. světové války byl zvolen předsedou kolonie a Čsl. výboru. Byl významným účastníkem odboje. U něho se scházeli přední představitelé politického života a zahraniční vláda ČSR. Sýkora byl dokonce spolupracovníkem našeho pozdějšího prvního prezidenta T.G. Masaryka. V roce 1917 vstoupil dobrovolně do anglické armády a stal se legionářem. Za okupace během 2. světové války byl členem ilegální skupiny p. Moulise ze Šťáhlav. Skupina byla prozrazena, Sýkora byl zatčen a 16. listopadu 1942 v Berlíně popraven.


Translated:
Jan Sýkora was born on July 23, 1876 in Komorno. He trained as a carpenter. In 1901 he went to London, where he established a Czech restaurant and established a Czech colony with the help of F. Kopecký. After the outbreak of the First World War he was elected chairman of the colony and Csl. Committee. He was a major player in the resistance. He was attended by leading representatives of political life and foreign government of Czechoslovakia. Sykora was even an associate of our later first president, T.G. Masaryk. In 1917 he volunteered for the English army and became a legionary. During the occupation during World War II he was a member of the illegal group of Mr. Moulis of Šťáhlav. The group was betrayed, Sykora was arrested and executed on November 16, 1942 in Berlin.
