    Representatives of Prague municipal organisations, delegations sent from Moscow and Warsaw municipalities and soldiers of the Soviet Army, on May 5th deposited wreaths at the memorial of heroes killed in World War II. Further wreaths were deposited by deputations of the following towns: Bratislava, Brno, Ostrava and Plzen, and by members of the Polish, British and French Army who had been fighting in Czechoslovak territory in WW II. Jointly with local citizens those foreign visitors honoured the memory of those who had been killed in action 20 years ago while fighting for the liberation of the capital.
