Operation Anthropoid - in the footsteps of Czech heroism

04.11.2016 source: Geodad

Film director Sean Ellis has assumed a daunting task – to credibly remind us of the important moment in history that changed the development of war-torn Europe and the fate of those who were not afraid to risk their own lives to end the domination of Nazi Germany over Czechoslovakia.  The film Anthropoid presented Czechoslovak heroes on the movie screens - Jozef Gabčík and Jan Kubiš played by Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan together with Aňa Geislerová in the main roles. In addition to the film version, Operation Anthropoid can also be experienced firsthand and in a suspenseful story with the GEOFUN mobile application you can visit the places in Prague where Operation Anthropoid took place. 

GEOFUN brings a riveting tale of two Czechoslovak fearless men, who were the main actors in the assassination of one of the most powerful men in the Third Reich, Reinhard Heydrich on May 27, 1942. Your guide will be Sergeant Jan Kubiš, Czechoslovak paratrooper trained for his mission in Great Britain by the Czechoslovak and British intelligence services. In a thrilling story he will reveal how the entire event was prepared, which was a matter of life or death, and hose detailed plan was only known to four people. He will reveal who helped them with the assassination on the part of the Gestapo in spite of the huge risk and also what happened afterwards, when Jozef Gabčík pointed his gun at the unsuspecting Heydrich, who did not fire the anticipated series of charges. You will also learn how far he managed to flee on his bicycle from the scene of the crime and what thoughts were running through his head during his escape.  

The game is available in both Czech and English versions with the original dubbing. It includes an animated trailer and thanks to virtual reality it allows you to see the original Mercedes-Benz W142, which Heydrich drove in through Prague’s district Kobylisy, which became fateful for him. The actual story and screenplay of the game was created by an expert on tourism from the University of Cambridge Dr. Wadim Strielkowski.

If you want to explore the fateful places in Prague firsthand, where Anthropoid took place and experience what it was like to shoot the third most dangerous man in the Third Reich, all you need to do is download the mobile application GEOFUN in your smart phone, register and find the game called “Operation Anthropoid” in the list or map of games, so-called geoparties.  Once you have downloaded the game, all you have to do is arrive at the initial coordinates and you may begin with your discovery of Prague accompanied by the agent of the Czechoslovak special units, Jan Kubiš. Internet connection is no longer required to play the game itself. The game is available all year round. More information about the game is available at  www.geofun.info/anthropoid
