About the tour: Operation Anthropoid by Air

Operation Anthropoid was the secret mission to assassinate Reinhard Heydrich, a high-ranking Nazi Official with control of much of Eastern Europe and one of the leading architects of the Holocaust. A team of SOE agents were flown to Czechoslovakia in December 1941 to carry out the operation. Heydrich was fatally wounded and his death lead to terrible consequences in Czechoslovakia.
