„You who survive these times must not forget. Forget neither the good nor the bad… I want this to be known: that there were no nameless heroes here; that they were people with names, faces, longings and hopes, and that the pain of the very last of them was no less than the pain of the very first… Man's duty does not end with this fight, for to be a man will continue to demand a heroic heart as long as mankind is not quite human.“
— Julius Fučík (journalist)
