Were the inhabitants of Ležáky hanged, or shot dead (as the Czech article states)? (added by Mike Rosoft)

If you want to dispose body quickly hanging is nuissance. Is there an evidence on contrary? Pavel Vozenilek 17:53, 27 May 2006 (UTC)
I don't think so, but the English article (incorrectly, as it appears) stated that they were hanged. - Mike Rosoft 06:59, 30 May 2006 (UTC)
It was my mistake. No idea where I did came up with that. Pavel Vozenilek 05:05, 2 June 2006 (UTC)
Are you sure it was the radio set for the Anthropoid Mission? I thought it was the radio set for Operation Silver A? See:


"Thirteen children were separated"? What from? Their parents, I'd assume, but without mentioning the parents, the sentence makes absolutely no sense. I can't be sure that's what the sentence is supposed to mean, though, so I do not feel entitled to correct it. For all I know the verb "separate" is here supposed to mean disembowelment, decapitation, or I dare not guess what. Author, please correct.

500 men to surround 8 houses?[edit]

It says the village was made up of eight houses. So, would one need more than 500 armed Germans to surrond it? --Rui ''Gabriel'' Correia (talk) 20:00, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

It says 500 SS 'and police' - the latter would have been indigenous collaborating police officers and probably not Germans (unless one means Sudetan Germans). The numbers would have tactical advantage in being able to form a wide cordon to cover all ways in and out of the village, stopping the way to anyone who wanted to come in and able to prevent successful escape attempts from the village. Some of the 500 would not have been in the cordon but deployed to search, arrest and execute. If in doubt, raise a citation need.Cloptonson (talk) 05:49, 8 September 2016 (UTC)
