Talk:Jan Zajíc

I have removed the following part from the article:

"Palach and Zajic were members of a student group whom all were willing to burn themselves alive for freedom and democracy in Czechoslovakia. Jan Zajic was the second student of the group to be picked randomly to perform this protest. Palach's letter wrote "should our demands not be met within 5 days and should the people not call a general strike on their behalf new torches will flare up. Realize! it might well be your sons and daughters or your brothers and sisters and loved ones who may be destined to become flaming torches...""

There is no citation for this and it is almost certainly not true. The group Palach wrote about was never uveiled and it is very likely that it was only Palach's mystification in order to enhance the impact of his individual act.
