A near 800 page book about Prague under the Nazi Protectorate was awarded the book of the year prize at the annual Magnesia Litera awards on Tuesday night. Author Jiří Padevět’s Průvodce protectorátní Prahou (Guide to Protectorate Prague) lists key localities where the Nazi authorities, collaborators, and opponents were located as well as details of how and where key incidents, such as the assassination of Reinhardt Heydrich and Prague uprising at the end of the war, took place. Many of the photographs used in the book were being made public for the first time.
