Jan Palach’s grave

Candles at Jan Palach's grave

A postcard showing candles burning down at the grave of Jan Palach. The photo is by Tomki Němec, and on the back it’s stamped “Agentura Radost.” I think a hole was punched in the upper right corner because the postcard was used as an admission ticket to an event.

If this image were included in an extra-illustrated binding of the novel Necessary Errors, it might follow page 385. (For an explanation of extra-illustration, click here.)
