Section A: Plan of Investigation
Between March 1939 and May 1945, what was left of the Czech part of Czechoslovakia after the Munich Agreement of 1938 - namely the regions of Bohemia, Moravia and Czech Silesia, was a part of the Third Reich as Protectorate Bohemia and Moravia. In 1941, following a series of resistance actions, Reinhard Heydrich replaced Konstantin von Neurath, who held the office of Reichsprotektor from the formation of the Protectorate. He then in a short period of time wiped out most of the resistance groups active in the area. On 4th June 1942, Heydrich was assassinated by two Czechoslovak men - resistance members in exile (in Great Britain).

Section C: Evaluation of sources

Source A
This source is a book published in 1979 (a revised edition of a book Nejen černé uniformy published in 1963) in Czechoslovakia, which is a collection of testimonies of people somehow involved in the resistance movement in the Protectorate Bohemia and Moravia, witnesses of the assassination and the events following it, put together by the Czech historian Miroslav Ivanov. The purpose of this book was to connect historical research with memories of witnesses and survivors of the oppression and in this way inform broader public. The value of the source lies in the fact it is a collection of testimonies and first hand sources which give us a deeper understanding of the issue. Also, it is one of the first Czechoslovak accounts of the Protectorate period written only approximately 20 years after the assassination. However, the latter mentioned can also add to the list of the limitations of this source because Czechoslovakia was ruled by the communist party from February 1948 and even though the last part of 1960’s brought temporary easing of censorship, this book was first published in 1963 and later revised and published again in 1979 which in practice means that it was in accordance with the regime. One can find many examples of this both in the testimonies and in passages touching in any way communism or Soviet Union together with the two resistance centres abroad (London, Moscow). We must not forget that the testimonies can be imprecise and subjective. Another limitation could be the lack of source references in this book which makes it practically impossible to find the material used by the historian.

Source B
Source B is a biography of Reinhard Heydrich by a German historian which was published by an academic (university associated) press in 2012. The purpose of the source is informatory - it is a summary of historical research regarding both Reinhard Heydrich personally and the countries under the...
