- The British train troops from the "Czech government in exile" for months on end in preparation for the upcoming "Operation Anthropoid"
- Assassins are airdropped Near Prague where they plan for 5 months to Assassinate Reinhard Heydrich who was head of the protectorate of Bohemia-Moravia at the time.
- On May 27th 1942 Heydrich is wounded due to an attack by the assassins, His wounds prove fatal on June 4th 1942
- Hitler hears of the news and becomes infuriated, Allied sources claim he originally wanted to kill 10,000 Czechs in Reprisal but is dissuaded from doing so
- Hitler Orders all people suspected of supporting, or helping the assassination to be killed, with their families being deported
- The SS has suspicions that the town of Lidice helped harbor the assassins who were involved in Operation Anthropoid
- In retaliation Hitler has all the men aged over 15 be separated from the women and children,Every last male adult is killed and all of the others are sent off to Concentration Camps where the children are gassed
- Afterwards the entire village is burned to the ground, and left in ruins
- Historians today claim there was no evidence the people of Lidice actually helped the original Assassins
First I will explain my current thoughts and counter arguments about the subject on the subject:
1. I have never seen a single document, speech, or video proving that Hitler himself ordered the attack The ONLY reason I even remotely suspect him is due to the scale of the "Destruction" phase of the massacre, and a lack of any reply from Hitler denying that he was involved (although admittedly this was at the same time the allies were claiming he was committing a whole myriad of massacres, It's quite possible he jsut got caught in all the lies and couldn't refute them all)
2.I do not believe the Fairy Tale that the children of Lidice were "Gassed" for reasons discussed in other threads on this website, which makes me question the Validity of the rest of the massacre. Especially the part about how "Every Last Man" was supposed to have been shot and killed
3.I am not sure how many of the men killed in the massacre were actually communist or partisan, and every article I've seen so far explaining the story seems to brush all German suspicions of Partisan Harboring under the rug. All they seem to do is say "There is no evidence of that they helped in Operation Anthropoid" and leave it at that without any further discussion.
4.This whole narrative seems to me like what the allies have similarly claimed before like in the case of the "Babi Yar Massacre" where they took Vigilante acts from German soldiers, and reprisals against partisans then exaggerated the numbers and claimed all the deaths were "civilians" without any real evidence. It also reminds me of all the other supposed massacres and "indiscriminate" village burnings in Poland that were also a result of Partisan activities occurring there, where all non partisans were moved safely towards the ghettos, and worker camps.
5.The actual story itself has many flaws when it comes to plausibility, with the thousands of ethnic Czechs who would end up becoming German citizens during the war, and many who even joined the SS themselves, It would make no sense to kill allies of the German Reich in such an indiscriminate way. Other examples would be how the Germans are supposed to be killing all the men without a flinch, yet for some reason give the women and children a pass. They try and act one second like the Germans are blood thirsty monsters then the next moment they somehow have a heart for all the innocent women who live there, despite going on to later gas the children. It just doesn't make since that the Germans could flip flop between sparing and indiscriminate so quickly during the massacre.
This is why I have started this thread, to get any further evidence, both for and against the existence of this massacre, and to get to the bottom of what truly happened after Operation Anthropoid. If there is anyone who has some sort of insight I have missed that could make the event here appear more clearly, please reply to this thread PLEASE reply to this thread and help me to get a true analysis of this alleged massacre.
