Here you can listen to audio recordings and radio broadcasts referring to the two well-known Czechoslovak self-immolation cases – Jan Palach and Jan Zajíc.

Czech Radio holds the copyright to all of these recordings, with the exception of Jaroslav Seifert’s speech and Zdena Kmuníčková’s interview with Jan Palach in hospital. For access to the first, we thank the poet’s heirs. The latter is uploaded on YouTube, and we provide here only the link to the recording.
