1939

Wednesday 7th June: By order of General Von Hellwig, the German Authorities of Occupation permit the piano recital of Mr. Jan Volny at the Smetana Concert Hall accompanied by the Czech Philhamonic Orchestra, thus demonstrating their "readiness to grant cultural freedom to the Czech population." However, Volny is specifically prohibited from playing Bedřich Smetana's Die Moldau for fear it will ignite anti-Nazi sentiment among the audience members. Volny plays the piece for an encore despite the danger and makes arrangements to flee the country immediately after the concert. (Prague, Czechoslovakia)
