On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the Operation Anthropoid, President Andrej Kiska has promoted Jozef Gabčík to the rank of Major General in memmoriam. On 27 May 1942 at 10:30 in Prague, Jozef Gabčík and Ján Kubiš carried out an attack on Reinhard Heydrich, the acting Reichsprotektor of Bohemia and Moravia. The assassination of Heydrich was one of the most significant moments of the World War II resistance in Czechoslovakia. The story of Jozef Gabčík and Ján Kubiš was lately captured in the 2016 movie Anthropoid.
